Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I love when dinner is a family affair. This recipe is delicious... So creamy and bursting with flavor. And, it's relatively quick and easy to prepare. A bonus in my kitchen!
1Alfredo Sauce: Whisk all ingredients in order SLOWLY in small saucepan over med heat. Whisk until smooth. Yield about 2 cups.
2Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
3Meanwhile, melt butter together with the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until softened and translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, red pepper, and mushroom; cook over medium-high heat until soft, about 2 minutes more.
4Stir in the shrimp, and cook until firm and pink, then pour in Alfredo sauce, Romano cheese, and light cream; bring to a simmer stirring constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with cayenne, salt, and pepper to taste.
