After tasting fettuccine Alfredo at a restaurant, I tried to duplicate the recipe at home. You can't imagine how pleased I was when I came up with this delicious version. Not only does my family love the creamy dish, but my husband prefers it to the one at the restaurant. —Rae Natoli, Kingston, New York

"It was a warm summer day and I didn't want to start up my oven, so I gave this recipe a try. I used whole wheat linguini instead of fettucine, and my husband and I both enjoyed it. I also used fresh brocolli florets and dropped them into the hot sauce with the shrimp and cooked them all together for a couple of minutes, until the brocolli was crisp tender. Very easy and delicious meal."

"I usually make my Alfredo with heavy cream and fresh parmesan. Tried this one with added parmesan and it was great. Also cheaper using milk instead of heavy cream."
