Savor velvety, creamy no hassle 30 Minute Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo that tastes every bit as decadent as the finest restaurant Alfredo without any of the guilt or the price.
Sometimes I am secretly giddy Patrick is allergic to shrimp. Is that awful? Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for the guy, and I don’t rub it in his face and if I could change it, I would…but his allergy to shrimp means I get to stuff Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo all in my face.
Good thing its lightened up because I slurped every last Parmesan, mozzarella drenched shrimp cradled in fettuccine noodles down over a couple of days.
You might think I’d get sick of fettuccine Alfredo after the first couple rounds, by my goodness, this pasta is so good, the more I ate, the more I craved it. Does that qualify as an addiction? It feels like one.
Not only is Alfredo sauce to live for, but the shrimp and broccoli are tossed in olive oil, and kisses of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper so they are bursting with flavor as you first roast the broccoli for 4 minutes then add the shrimp and roast for 6-8 more minutes for perfectly crisp-tender broccoli and perfectly cooked shrimp.
Roasted shrimp and broccoli. I am a fan. Huge fan. (If you have never roasted shrimp and/or broccoli, I think this will become your new favorite method!) Sneak a few roasted morsels before they get dunked in Alfredo sauce and you won’t be able to keep your hands off.
While the magic of roasting is transpiring, you whip up your lightened up rich, creamy Alfredo sauce that masquerades as pure decadence but boasts only a fraction of the fat as the traditional Alfredo sauce. The sauce is made with both Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese for a depth of flavor while complimented by garlic, basil, parsley and red pepper flakes so you don’t miss all the extra butter or heavy cream.
After you stir in your roasted shrimp and broccoli to the Alfredo, you stir in your fettuccine…
And in less than 30 minutes your family will be singing your praises.
In between mouthfuls of Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo.
Come and get it.
