Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Using up some ingredients we had laying around and adding some cooked shrimp... We threw this Fettuccine Alfredo together with a little recipe help from Emeril Lagasse.
I've have never made an Alfredo sauce because it seemed like a hard task, but it wasn't at all.

I know your looking at the pic and there are no Fettuccine noodles
I used up the angel hair noodles we had stuffed in the back cupboard.

Fettucine Alfredo

  • 1 pound dried fettucine
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish, optional

Cook the fettucine in a pot of rapidly boiling salted water until al dente. Drain in a colander, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking liquid.
While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and saute until tender. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil. Cook until sauce has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Return the pasta to the pot it was cooked in, set over medium-high heat along with the reserved cooking liquid. Add the butter-cream mixture and half of the Parmesan and toss to combine thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
