Creamy Homemade Shrimp Alfredo
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: Serves 4
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ - 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. frozen cooked and peeled shrimp, thawed (I prefer wild-caught)
  • 1 (16 oz) box linguine pasta noodles, preferably organic
  1. Cook pasta to package instructions. Drain and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in Parmesan and pepper.
  3. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken rapidly, so thin with milk if cooked too long.
  4. In a large frying pan on medium heat, sear shrimp on each side for 1 minute.
  5. In a large bowl, toss noodles with alfredo sauce and seared shrimp. Serve.
