Shrimp Alfredo

So usually my favorite recipes are the ones I come up with when I have something extra leftover from another recipe. This time I had leftover heavy whipping cream so I made some shrimp alfredo.


  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbps. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. parsley flakes
  • Cooked pasta
  • Cooked shrimp
  1. Melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add cream. Make sure to stir a lot.
  3. Add garlic powder, black pepper, and basil.
  4. Add cheese.
  5. Stir mixture until melted. (if you are not using fresh grated cheese it wont be creamy, but it still tastes good!)
  6. Remove some of mixture and place in bowl. Add egg yolk and stir.
  7. Add yolk mixture to cheese and cream mixture.
  8. Add cream cheese.
  9. Stir until smooth.
  10. Simmer over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
  11. Add parsley flakes.
  12. If sauce is too salty for your taste, add some milk.
  13. In big bowl add sauce, pasta, and shrimp.
