Guy Stuff – Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Untitled-1Guy Stuff – Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

This time around I have a super easy, delicious Italian dish, my overall favorite! There are many combinations of things you can make with this, and garlic shrimp is one of my staples. Of course you can go crazy and jack the price up with lots of great fresh ingredients like lobster, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, calamari, etc. but it’s also awesome just plain. Below I’ve listed the stuff you need, for a large family serving. 1/2 the list for a few big meals.

2 lbs. fettuccine pasta
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 stick butter
2 cloves worth of garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 small bags of shrimp
2 tablespoons parsley
16 oz parmesan cheese

If you want to make it plain, start with the butter for the sauce and omit the garlic or just use a pinch.

    Oh man this looks so good. It’s a shame I can’t partake if I’m trying to keep my cholesterol down. It would be a 5 point exploding heart move on me lol

    You mention using good quality pans and the like. What would you consider to be a good brand?

      I have no idea about brands – get something with thick metal, solid rivets, metal handles, etc. Don’t get the $1.99 set at Kmart :)

        Like Bryan said, heavy is good. A way to test a pan for even heating is to put some water in (enough to cover the bottom) and bring it up to a boil. If the heat is being transferred evenly, bubbles should form uniformly on the bottom…not just in some areas. Also, remember the right tool for the right job. Different cookinf methods required different pans…ie non-stick vs. cast iron.

    Yeah, I’m with “The new guy”. Minute I saw the whole bar of butter go in, it was game over for me. Sucks to be middle age.

    Thats it! New Guy and CigarRaider…hand over your man-cards.

    Seriously, a meal like this once and again won’t kill you. You could also try substituting ingredients…

    Made this the other night! Turned out pretty good, but it was MUCH better after letting it sit in the fridge for a day. Is that true for you as well?

      Yep!!

    Two words: Slotted spoon.
    I thought that you would never be done taking the shrimp out of the pan with those tongs.

    Looked delicious, though.
