How to make Shrimp Alfredo with Pasta:

For the easiest meal prep I recommend buying frozen shrimp in a bag that is labeled “peeled, deveined and tails removed”. Thaw before using in this recipe.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions, then drain.

While the pasta is cooking, cut the cream cheese into cubes.

Also, heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the cream cheese and butter, stirring until melted. It won’t be smooth and creamy yet.

Add the shrimp and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, flipping them over half way through. The shrimp will be opaque and pink when cooked through.
