Easy Shrimp Alfredo Recipe - great romantic date night dinner!

Shrimp Alfredo is a beautiful mix of flavors with homemade creamy white Alfredo sauce seasoned with garlic, shaved Parmesan cheese, and succulent shrimp all stirred together with perfect al dente pasta. This recipe is easy and quick, ready in just 20 minutes. Great romantic date night dinner for two. For the easiest meal prep I recommend buying frozen shrimp in a bag that is labeled “peeled, deveined and tails removed”.

 

Boil water in a sauce pan and cook the pasta according to the package directions, then drain.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over medium heat, mix together the cream cheese and butter, stirring until the cheese and butter are melted.
