30 Minute Shrimp Alfredo

IMG_4815-1I am all about posting cheesy recipes. I can’t help it. I’m an American. I was born with cheese in my blood. Or… maybe that’s the Alabamian in me. Who knows. Anyways, this Alfredo is ridiculously easy, cheesy, and great for a quick weeknight meal.

 

 

You Will Need:

  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 tbs. butter
  • 3 tbs. minced garlic
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese or 3 cheese blend
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
  • Parsley to garnish

Directions:

  1. Using a hand mixer or blender, mix together the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt until smooth, set aside
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter and add garlic. Satue garlic for about a minute, then add in peeled and deveined shrimp
  3. Cook 3-5 minutes, until pink, and just barely cooked through
  4. Remove shrimp from pan, leave garlic and butter drippings in saucepan
  5. Add milk mixture to the pan, and stir for 4 minutes on medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and keep stirring for about 6 more minutes until is starts to thicken.
  6. Remove from heat, add grated cheese and Parmesan
  7. Cover, let stand for about 5 minutes.
  8. Add shrimp into sauce and let stand another 5 minutes
  9. Serve over noodles of choice. (1 lb package is sufficient)
  10. Garnish with some dried parsley
