Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Alfredo

Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Alfredo is a wonderfully creamy and rich pasta dish with lots of garlic flavor. Can be made start to finish in just 20 minutes.

The alfredo sauce for this Italian dinner is from scratch but super easy to make. Four ounces of cream cheese combine with a simple flour and milk roux to make an ultra creamy and thick sauce. For cheese flavor there is both mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.
If you want to make this dish spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
What to Serve With Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Alfredo:

Steamed green beans or broccoli
Pepperoncini Garlic Bread
A green salad with Creamy Italian Dressing

Recipe Tips:
Stir the shrimp and garlic frequently when cooking them so that the garlic doesn’t burn. Be sure to save some of the pasta water just before you drain the pasta. It is an important component of the sauce.
Be sure to not let the sauce boil after you add the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. It can cause the sauce to break and coagulate.
You can use any size shrimp. If you use smaller shrimp, be sure not to overcook them. They cook super fast. Either fresh shrimp or frozen shrimp that have been thawed can be used. Scallops also work well in this recipe.
Leftovers will keep for about 3 days but you may want to add a splash of milk when you reheat them. The sauce is already thick and will thicken more in the refrigerator as the pasta absorbs the liquid.
