Shrimp Alfredo

Makes 3-5 servings approx time 30 minutes

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, medium dice
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp each salt and italian seasoning and cayenne to taste
  • 1 bag cleaned shelled med-large sized raw shrimp
  • 1 cup cream
  • cooked drained long pasta
  • fresh grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat butter and oil together in large flat bottomed frying pan while cooking the pasta in a separate pot. Add onions and saute for 3 minutes, then add garlic and continue cooking another minute or two. Sprinkle the spices on top of the garlic and onions. Then push to the side of the pan and add the shrimp (make sure they’re dried off with paper towels). Cook until shrimp are just barely done, then stir in the cream and lower the heat. Continue to heat gently as long as it takes to thicken the sauce up a little, then add the drained pasta to the pan. Combine thoroughly and serve with fresh parm and salt and pepper. This would be great with some fresh chopped basil or parsley on top.
