From My Kitchen: Easy Shrimp Alfredo

I’m all for quick dinner ideas, especially in the hot summer months. It just gets too hot in the kitchen to cook a lengthy, elaborate meal. This recipe is fast, simple and delicious. It only has a few ingredients, and as for the shrimp, I used pre-cooked ones, just to make it even faster. It’s a perfect dish for a weeknight dinner, or on the weekend for a nice dinner with friends or family. It literally only takes about 20 minutes to prepare this, so get cooking!

What you’ll need:

Prepare your pasta according to the instructions on the package. Add shallot and butter to the pan. Sauté for 3 minutes.

Add Half and Half, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low/medium, and simmer for five minutes. Add paremsan cheese. Stir until hot and incorporated into the sauce.

Add black pepper. Add she precooked shrimp. Stir well and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Add the hot pasta. Stir. Transfer to a large bowl, and garnish with parsley.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
