Shrimp is something that always seemed like a decadent meal to me. Of course I am a fish-noob and have no idea what I am talking about when it comes to eating sea meat of any sort, so perhaps you should not pay attention. Well until I get to the recipe part anyway. So back to shrimp. It seemed the height of decadence, you put it with steak, or dip it in butter, and it’s rather expensive too. But this slightly simple pasta meal will help you feel like you’re on the list of well-to-do when serving it too! This sauce has been adapted from Emeril Legasse’s Alfredo recipe, and if anyone, he knows how to do it right.
*Do not rinse the pasta. This will prevent the sauce from sticking to it.
**Do not put oil in the pasta water when boiling, this will also prevent the sauce from sticking to the pasta.
***Use real parmesan cheese for this recipe, the hard pellet stuff you get in the cans will not melt properly. You can substitute a preferred cheese instead of parmesan, it is expensive.
Butter and heavy cream make this pasta dish absolutely creamy and rich. The shrimp and vegetables give a great little sweet tang and loads of colour to the whole thing. All in all another successful step towards eating more seafood.
