OMG Shrimp Alfredo with Fresh Cilantro

Chasy Fronheiser


This is better than olive garden's Alfredo sauce in my opinion...and my picky 5 year old LOVES it (minus the shrimp lol). Hubby says he could eat it every night...not much in the way of leftovers, but if there ARE, it's even better warmed up the next day after the sauce has soaked into the noodles.

How to Make OMG Shrimp Alfredo with Fresh Cilantro


  1. Peel and de-veign shrimp. Saute in with 1 tsp of the garlic, till pink. Set aside.
  2. Prepare pasta as directed on package then set aside if done before sauce is ready. Be careful not to overcook as it will cook a little bit more at the end when everything is all mixed together.

    Melt butter then slowly stir or whisk in flour, making sure you get all the lumps out.

    Gradually add in your milk, again making sure you get any lumps out.

    Stir/whisk until it's hot and starting to thicken, about 5 minutes or so,

    Add the cheese, stirring until it's melted and smooth.

    Add the garlic and pepper,

    Once it's thickened take it off the heat and add your fresh cilantro, stirring it in.

    Add your sauteed garlic shrimp and your pasta to the sauce and cook for about 2-3 minutes mixing well.
