Full Answer

To make shrimp fettuccine Alfredo according to the instructions from MyRecipes, cook 9 ounces of refrigerated fettuccine according to the package instructions, but do not add any salt or oil. Drain the fettuccine, and reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Toss 1 pound of peeled and deveined shrimp with 2 chopped green onions and 2 minced cloves of garlic. Fry the shrimp mixture with 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat for about four minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through. Set the shrimp aside and keep them warm.

Switch the heat to the medium setting. Stir in reserved pasta water, 1/2 cup of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, 1/3 cup of half-and-half, 3 tablespoons of cream cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. When the mixture develops into a smooth sauce, combine it with the cooked pasta and shrimp mixture. Serve the dish with a garnish of chopped fresh parsley.

Kraft's creamy shrimp Alfredo recipe features linguine as the pasta component. The sauce consists of cream cheese, chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinaigrette dressing and garlic.
