Reviews for Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo
"This is a great simple recipe. I used raw shrimp and fried them in a pan with a bit of butter and garlic powder before adding them to the sauce. Delicious."
"Just wondering, do you have to use cooked Shrimp, or could you add the raw shrimp and have it cook in the sauce? Obviously I am not a good cook or I would know the answer. So I look to you for help. The recipe sounds good, and I could do this. Just looking for a bit of help. Thanks!"
