Shrimp And Asparagus Fettuccine Alfredo

Updated: Sep 22

Rich and creamy alfredo paired with tender succulent jumbo shrimp and crisp slices of asparagus is the perfect romantic dinner dish to set the mood.

I am a lover of cheese and seafood and every chance I get I am going to find a recipe to bring the two things I love to eat have a happy marriage. This is is no exception to the rule.

The yellowish white velvety cream sauce coating the fettuccine and plumb juicy shrimp leaves a mouthwatering experience lingering in your mind but satisfying to the soul. The asparagus and just the right texture of crispy crunch.
