This just in….the liquor cabinet is running low, Heather. Instead I am posting this great New Year’s Eve dish for a romantic dinner! Just add candles, soft music and…of course a bottle of Ontario wine!!! How ’bout a little Tony Bennett and Diana Krall?
Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo
Makes: 4 servings Total Time: 1 hr
What you need
- 1 tablespoon Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream
- 3-5 cloves garlic, minced and halved, divided
- 1 stick real butter, divided
- 8 oz. package fettuccine noodles, cooked according to package
- 1 lb. cooked shrimp
- Garlic salt
- 1 and 1/2 cups Kraft Parmesan Cheese
Heat cream cheese, whipping cream, 2 cloves minced garlic, and 3/4 stick of butter until reaches slight boil. Keep at a low boil for 20 minutes, continuously stirring.
In the meantime, cook noodles according to package. Place remaining butter and garlic in a large fry pan and heat. Add shrimp and heat until thoroughly cooked. ( I added some bay portobello mushrooms). Add garlic salt, salt, and pepper to taste.
After 20 minutes, turn heat off the sauce and add Parmesan cheese. Stir and add any garlic salt, salt, or pepper if needed. Add the shrimp to the sauce and then pour over the cooked noodles. Grate some fresh nutmeg over top if you like that taste!
