Garlic Parmesan Pasta and Shrimp is totally DELICIOUS! I found the recipe for the pasta sauce on Pinterest, and because it was fairly similar to the sauce I usually make, I decided to try it. Pan-seared shrimp were added to the pasta, for a bit of protein and all around flavor!

Once you’ve quickly pan-cooked the shrimp, the rest of the dish is cooked in one pan on the stove top. And guess what? It’s scrumptious! Here’s how easy it is to make this dish:

Pan-Sear The Shrimp

Peel and de-vein the shrimp, and then season them lightly with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat, and add the shrimp.

Sear the shrimp on both sides of olive until done, turning to cook both sides. This will take about 3-5 minutes total, and they will turn pink as they cook. Set the cooked shrimp aside and cover.

Make The Garlic Parmesan Sauce For The Pasta

Heat olive oil on medium-high in a large skillet. Add the minced garlic to the hot oil, and cook for about a minute, stirring often to prevent burning.  Now add the butter, chicken broth and milk, and whisk these together while the butter melts.

Add UNCOOKED Fettucine to The Sauce

Place the uncooked fettucine noodles into the sauce, in the skillet. I used my fresh homemade pasta, made from scratch (yippee!). Season to taste, with salt and pepper. Stir in the noodles and simmer (on medium-low heat) until the pasta has completely cooked through. This will take about 15-18 minutes for commercially prepared pasta). 

Stir the pasta and sauce occasionally while it cooks! Once the pasta is cooked through, add some fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Stir well, to combine.  If you find the sauce has thickened too much, simply add a bit more milk, until it’s the thickness you desire.
