Mushroom Shrimp Alfredo Pasta


I combined several different recipes to create this shrimp and mushroom Alfredo pasta dish — it's definitely a winner. Garnish with chopped parsley.

  • 1 (16 ounce) box dry fettuccine pasta

  • 1 ¼ cups butter, divided

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream

  • ¾ cup grated Romano cheese

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed, divided

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 8 ounces diced mushrooms

  • 1 (8 ounce) package frozen shrimp, deveined and tails removed, thawed


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat. Stir in fettuccine, return to a boil, and cook until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and keep warm.

  2. While the fettuccine is cooking, heat 1 cup butter and cream in a large saucepan over medium heat. When butter melts, add Romano, Parmesan, 1/3 of the garlic, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until cheese melts and sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  3. At the same time, heat remaining 1/4 cup butter and olive oil in another saucepan over medium heat. When butter melts, add onion; cook and stir until softened and translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and remaining garlic; increase the heat to medium-high and cook until mushrooms are soft, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until bright pink on the outside and opaque in the center, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Fold shrimp mixture into sauce. Add drained fettuccine and toss to coat.
