Skillet Shrimp Alfredo with Roasted Red Peppers

Shrimp Alfredo

On the menu tonight – Skillet Shrimp Alfredo with Roasted Red Peppers!

This sounds like a fancy dish, and it kind of is, but it is really easy to make AND it doesn’t take very long.

You could make this dish in about the same amount of time as it takes to order a pizza, but this tastes SO much better and it is way more impressive.

The list of ingredients to make this dish is pretty short. All you need are the noodles, shrimp, a jar of roasted red peppers ( that you probably have in your pantry), cream, garlic, butter, and the Parmesan cheese.

If you haven’t made this before, I hope you will make my version. Once you do, not only will you have a delicious dinner, you can take the method learned here and turn it into a bunch of other meals. For example, leave out the shrimp and red pepper and just make Fettuccini Alfredo. Add a little chicken (take a shortcut and add rotisserie chicken) and you have Chicken Alfredo. The options are limitless. Let me know how your version turns out.
