Creamy Shrimp Alfredo Pasta

I love making Shrimp Alfredo, it is so simple and quick. There’s really not much to it either, so a little prep and dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes. You can use angel hair pasta or fettuccine, I’m not a fan of thick pasta so I stick to the thin stuff, but you can use which ever you prefer. 

1/3 cup Butter
2 Medium Onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves Garlic, finely minced
2 tsp Flour
1/2tsp Salt
1/2 cup Half & Half
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Lemon Zest
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Parsley

8 oz Angel hair pasta , uncooked ( or fettuccine)

 Cook the pasta according to the directions on the box. Drain it and set aside keeping warm. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high and saute onion and garlic for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
 Reduce the heat and stir in the flour, salt and pepper until flour just begins to color a little ( don’t let this burn) . Gradually stir in half and half, reducing heat and simmer until thickened. It shouldn’t only be about 5 minutes. Add in the lemon juice,  zest and shrimp. Cook for about 3-5 minutes more or until the shrimp turns pink. Transfer this in with the cooked pasta, tossing with Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with extra parley, pepper to taste.

Simple and quick, my kids always love this dish, I  never have left overs.  Enjoy!

    I have never made Shrimp Alfredo before. This recipe looks like it would be delicious and easy to make. Lunch or dinner, this would work.
