Let me start off by saying… Don’t.. I repeat, don’t make this unless you want to make it every other week!
Or every week if you want to get crazy with it.
Personally, I make it once a week (:
One week I’ll make chicken Alfredo, and the next I’ll make it with shrimp!
It’s seriously so amazing, and way too easy!
My awesome Brazilian mother in law was just visiting last month, and it was my mission to learn her recipe while she was here.
She made it for us years ago, while Phillip and I were still in school, and it hasn’t left my taste buds since.
Thankfully, now I can make it on my own! (:
This serving will feed about 4 people!
It feeds my husband and I, as well as leftovers for two! (:
-THE STEPS FOR THE NOODLES ARE NOT LISTED-
So, make sure to have your noodles cooking while making the sauce & shrimp (:
For the SAUCE:
-16 oz box of Noodles (I use Fettuccine)
-2 TBS of flour
-2 TBS of butter
-1 TBS of olive oil
-3 cups of milk
-1 half pint carton of heavy whipping cream
-1 cup of Parmesan cheese
-3 TBS of corn starch
For the SHRIMP:
-Pre-cook, de-veined Shrimp; we use about a 1 lb bag, it just depends on how shrimpy you want it.
-2 TBS of minced garlic
-3 TBS of olive oil
FOR THE ALFREDO SAUCE:
Combine 2 TBS of flour, 2 TBS of butter & 1 TBS of olive oil into a big pot.
Once your butter is melted, it will look’a like’a thissss’a.
(That’s Italian, right?)
Next, mix your 3 cups of milk into the butter mixture.
Stir it until the butter mixture dissolves into the milk,
it should look like buttery milk (:
Add your carton of heavy cream to your buttery milk!
Also, add the 1 cup of Parmesan cheese to the butter milk mixture!
Now it’s time to thicken the sauce!
Stir the mixture of medium heat for about 5 minutes, stir it in 30 second intervals,
30 seconds on, 30 seconds off.
Next, add 3 TBS of cornstarch, mixing well in between each TBS.
Since cornstarch tends to clump up, you have to do this step with a whisk!
A whisk seems to do the best job at breaking up those clumps (:
Turn the heat low after your cornstarch is mixed in.
Keep stirring on & off until your sauce reaches a thick consistency.
After your sauce has thickened up, add salt to taste.
Does your sauce look, smell, and taste like some bomb.com Alfredo?!
Well, it should!
Now for the SHRIMP:
Next, rinse off your shrimpy’s!
Place your shrimp in the pan with the oil & garlic.
The purpose of cooking the shrimp with with oil & garlic is just to give them some flavor,
& warm them up.
Make sure to cook them only to the point where they’re warm!
Taste testing is necessary at this step (:
Drain your shrimp, and combine them with your sauce! (:
Add your noodles, and you’re golden.
Speaking of golden noodles..
Apparently my camera has the midas touch, because it sure turned those noodles to gold!
Only the best golden noodles for my baby!
I hope that you all try this out, I can assure you that you won’t regret it (:
