I never eat Shrimp Fettuccine when I go out, only because I never liked the way restaurants did their sauce! I realized it was time I tried to make it myself and was surprised at how easy it was! And of course, you can’t have a delicious, thick cream sauce without bread sticks!! This is the first time I made bread sticks and was pleasantly surprised!!! I mean. it’s just bread sticks how hard can it be, right? lol. The Shrimp Fettuccine was delicious, Alfredo sauce originated in Rome Italy and is a sauce primary made of real butter ( salted or unsalted) and Parmesan cheese.
- 1/2 -3/4 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and rinsed.
- 2 cups of parsley
- 5 cups of heavy cream
- 2 garlic gloves
- 1/2 stick of unsalted butter
- 4 cups of shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 pkg of fettuccine noodles cook as directed on the box
Note: Cook pasta as directed on the box and set aside. Note: I halfway cook the pasta because the pasta will finish cooking in the Alfredo sauce
1. After your shrimp is peeled, deveined and rinsed, in a pan combine butter and garlic. Saute on low heat.
2. Once the butter is melted, combine your Parmesan cheese.
3. Then quickly add in your heavy cream and stir vigorously.
4. Once the cheese sauce is melted continue stirring every 3-5 minutes. Turn heat on low.
4. When your sauce has cooked down for 10-15 minutes on low, add pasta and parsley.
5. Once you are ready you can add your shrimp. What I did was bake my shrimp for 10 minutes on 350 and laid the shrimp on top for a nicer presentation. Pair these with my homemade bread sticks! (See recipe below)
HOMEMADE GARLIC BREAD STICKS
WHAT YOU NEED:
Note: The dough needs to be as moist as possible while still maintaining its mold and consistency.
- 1pkg of active dry yeast
- 6 cups of flour
- 2 teaspoons of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 4 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1. Drop the pkg of yeast in a bowl with 1/4 cup of very warm water. Wait 3-5 minutes.
2. Then add 4 cups of flour, sugar, salt, butter and pepper.
3. Mix vigorously for up to five minutes.
4. On a floured cutting board, knead dough with hands until smooth. Note: it will be sticky at first, but continue adding a little flour until it smooths out.
5. When the dough is smooth, form into a log and begin slicing long pieces (at least 7) 8 inches in length and 1/2 inches in width. Really it just depends on the shape and size you desire. It does not have to be a particular size. You can make them thicker or skinnier.( If you want crunchier bread sticks, then make them skinnier)
6. Let them sit covered in a warm spot for 30 minutes. They will begin to rise a little. Preheat oven for 400 degrees. While your bread is sitting, you can make a sauce with garlic, butter and olive oil to brush on the bread sticks.
7. Once I brushed my sticks with garlic and butter, I sprinkled sea salt, and garlic seasoning.
(I RECOMMEND THIS!)
8. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. ( Keep on eye on them after 10 minutes. I looked at the bottom of the bread sticks and once the bottom was nice and brown, they were ready to come out).
Once they cool, enjoy with some Alfredo sauce 😉
