I found some pasta nests at the store and decided to do a Shrimp Alfredo with them. Yummy, I haven’t had this in years. It turned out great, maybe a little thick on the sauce so I upped the cream in the recipe for you. This is a fast and easy weekday meal ideal for Spring!!
Shrimp Alfredo Recipe
2 Tbsp. butter
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup white wine
3 cups half and half cream
1 cup parmesan, grated
Salt to taste
1 lb. shrimp cooked in crab boil spices
8-10 tagliatelle nests
Freshly ground black pepper
Parsley to garnish
Heat a large pot of salted water for the pasta. Melt butter in a frypan and saute garlic and red onion. Add white wine and let it reduce to less than a 1/4 cup.
Add 2 Tbsp. flour to the onion mixture and stir for 1 min. Slowly with a wooden spoon or whisk add the cream. Heat to simmer and reduce slightly.
Add the cheese and salt to taste. Cook pasta to the manufacturers’ instructions. Ladle sauce over the pasta nests (if they come apart while cooking just reform them into little nests again), top with the cooked shrimp.
Garnish with parsley and freshly ground black pepper.
