Shrimp Alfredo with Broccoli – Creamy and Delicious

One of my favorite restaurant dishes is Shrimp Alfredo with broccoli.  I love the richness of the dish.

My daughter always orders it when we eat out together too.   It is one of my favorite shrimp recipes to make at home.

I have a bumper crop of broccoli in my garden and this recipe is a great way to use some of it!

This is my latest attempt at as slimming down one of our favorite recipes. You can’t imagine how pleased I was when I came up with this delicious version. Not only do I love the creamy dish, but my daughter says that she prefers it to the one we get when we dine out.

The recipe combines fettuccine noodles, with Gulf Shrimp in a creamy sauce made from milk and cream cheese.

I had to de-vein these shrimp before I made the recipe. For tips on how to de-vein shrimp, please visit this page.

For a light version of this dish, check out my shrimp pasta with broccoli. It has no cream but is surprisingly rich and comforting.

This is THE BEST comfort food and the Shrimp tops the taste off. Only think is my hubby is severely allergic to Shrimp. Me being way South Louisiana Cajun.......I miss eating my Shrimp, Crawfish, Crabs, and Oysters BUT one good thing is he eats Fish. YaY!!! We both love alfredo sauce so I will make this recipe with chicken and load on the sauce....LOL One day SOON when my Son comes to visit me, I'll make it with THE BEST part of the dish; the Shrimp. Thank You for Sharing this recipe and I cannot wait to cook it.

Hi Vanessa. My pleasure entirely. Chicken would work great...but the shrimp does make it special. Shame about hubby being allergic. Carol
