Cook Time: 20 minutes

Prep Time: 15 minutes

  • 8-10  ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 pound shrimp (31-40 count size) thawed & peeled, tails optional
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened & cut into smaller pieces
  • 3/4 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. If shrimp is frozen, run under hot water for 5-10 minutes to dethaw.
  2. Take the cream cheese out of the fridge to soften up.
  3. Start boiling the fettucine. Cook al dente according to package directions.
  4. In a large saucepan, add the cream, butter, cream cheese, garlic, and chicken broth over medium heat. Stir to combine. After everything has softened and combined, the sauce should become thick.
