Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Immediately add shrimp and garlic; cook until shrimp is pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle salt, basil, and paprika over shrimp. Cook and stir for 1 minute more, leaving shrimp slightly undercooked to finish cooking in the sauce.

  • Remove shrimp mixture from the skillet. Add mushrooms to the same skillet. Cook and stir, seasoning with salt, until juicy, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp; immediately pour in half-and-half, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, constantly stirring, until cheese melts, 5 to 8 minutes. Cover with a lid and remove from heat.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook fettuccine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. If cream sauce is too thick, add some pasta water in small amounts. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Add to the cream sauce.

A solid 5 for flavour but I thought that the cooking instructions were off. Start cooking the pasta before beginning the rest of the recipe. Because of the longer cooking time I used shrimp that were large, size 16/20. I cooked the shrimp for a few minutes then added the garlic until fragrant. I didn't add the salt to the mushrooms until they were cooked, adding salt at the beginning will draw out the water, total cooking time will be 15 minutes. Should I make this again I will add 1 tbs of butter, at the end, to make it silky. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

The mozzarella coagulated into a chewy lump. Start pasta noodles early. Read More

I don't eat pasta so I am always looking for creative ways to feed my husband and son. I didn't have half and half so used evap milk with reg milk it took awhile to thicken. I also started the pasta first so it was ready to mix when the mushrooms were done. I also added more salt and pepper to taste and some dried onion. They both loved it. I will be making it again (but with the half and half):) Read More

We loved it. My 10 year old son helped me make it. It came out great. So tasty. Next time I will make it creamier though. It was a little dry for our liking. Definitely making it again Read More
