Here is a dish that isn’t for the crock pot but can be on the table in 30 minutes! This Rich & Creamy Shrimp and Mushroom Fettuccine is definitely a way to work smart in the kitchen and this is one of my kids favorite meals!

As most others, my recipes are inspired by recipes I have seen. I do not remember where I got the original recipe but I have added new ingredients, doubled the sauce recipe ingredients (almost) and added some other seasonings that I like. Since there is so much of me in this, I claim it as mine!

What really makes this sauce special is that it doesn’t have Parmesan Cheese like most Alfredo sauces have. Since Parmesan is a migraine trigger this is perfect and I use this sauce recipe as a replacement for Alfredo sauce.

Rich & Creamy Shrimp and Mushroom Fettuccine - #recipe #seafood #mushrooms #easycookingYes, 10 Tablespoons of butter is a lot of butter. For starters, I don’t recommend that you eat like that everyday. Treating yourself to a dish laden in yummy butter is perfectly acceptable on occasion.

This fettuccine dish is wonderful with some smoked sausage and/or zucchini and adding these takes this recipe over the top. The different flavors and textures in this single dish makes it pleasing to the tastebuds!

  3. Oh, this looks so utterly delicious and – crucially for me – not too hard! We all love seafood in my family, even my ultra fussy 8 y/o daughter, so I’m bookmarking this page to try out later. And I love that adjustable widget in your recipe that automatically calculates the amounts per person – genius! Thank you so much for sharing xx

  4. No idea you had a recipe series, I will definitely be here to read more. I agree, nothing wrong with adding butter to your sauces, everything in moderation. This dish looks so good and I was so happy how easy it is to make. I’m gonna suggest this to my family. I like the idea of addding sausage and zucchini, perfect for our taste buds.
