My mom and I both found this recipe one year in the Sunday coupon inserts in our newspaper. My mom tried it out first and really liked it. So it is one now that she will request sometimes for her birthday dinner. I made it just like the recipe said for her last birthday except that I quadrupled the recipe and doubled the shrimp! Yeah, we have a big family!
Shrimp Linguine Alfredo
- 8 ounces linguine
- 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
- 1 pound medium fresh shrimp peeled and deveined
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 package 3 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves optional
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in large skillet over medium heat, melt butter.
Sprinkle shrimp with garlic salt; cook until shrimp turn pink (about 2 minutes.)
Add milk and heat just to boiling; stir in cream cheese and basil.
Reduce heat, stirring constantly until cream cheese is completely melted.
Remove from heat; stir in Parmesan cheese.
Toss hot pasta and sauce; serve immediately.
