  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 16 ounces large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 ounces dry fettuccine noodles
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

How To Make One Pan Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

  1. Cook the Shrimp:
  • In a sauté pan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Add the shrimp and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until opaque.
  • Transfer the shrimp to a plate or bowl and cover to keep warm.
  1. Sauté the Garlic:
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the pan.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  1. Cook the Pasta:
  • Pour in the chicken broth and milk.
  • Add the dry fettuccine noodles and stir to separate them.
  • Once the liquid comes to a boil, cover the pan, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for about 11 minutes, or until the noodles are al dente (refer to your pasta’s package directions).
  • Stir once halfway through to prevent the noodles from sticking.
  1. Make the Sauce:
  • Remove the lid. Most of the liquid should be absorbed.
  • Add the heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg.
  • Stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  1. Combine and Serve:
  • Add the cooked shrimp back into the pan and stir to combine.
  • Remove the pan from heat and let it sit for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.

Enjoy your creamy, delicious One Pan Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo with minimal cleanup and maximum flavor!
