  1. OMG. I made this Alfredo sauce. Made it for Turkey Tetrazini. So perfect. My husband is a Chef and made him this treat. He said this is better than he makes. I agreed and it’s quicker. Thanks a million.

    Only 1/4 lb of shrimp? Seems like it should be at least 1 lb. Otherwise, this is a keeper

    1. Hi Charlotte. Glad you like this recipe! It’s one of our favorites! Yes, add more shrimp! Up to a pound would be great! Thanks! -Amy

  3. love this and it’s so easy and fast. The only thing is I wish it were thicker, any suggestions on how to make that happen?? I have tried adding more parmesan cheese but no luck.

    1. We all loved this at our house. The kids said it was better then Olive Garden! The sauce was a little thin so I took some corn starch in a separate little bowl. Then I added some of the sauce to it creating a paste/ rue. Then I slowly added a little at a time to the big pot of Alfredo till it was the thickness I wanted. We didn’t add shrimp as my daughter is allergic to seafood.
      Thank You Amy!! Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!! 🙂

  4. This Rocks!!! add garlic and green onions too butter before you add cream
