Shrimp Scampi Fettuccine with Andouille Butter Recipe

We enjoy andouille sausage with pasta; now change up the usual Scampi by turning andouille into a butter sauce. —Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 package (16 ounces) fettuccine
  • 3/4 pound fully cooked andouille sausage links, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 3/4 cup butter, cut up
  • 2 medium leeks (white portion only), thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Minced fresh parsley and lemon wedges, optional


  • 1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. In a large skillet, cook and stir sausage over medium-high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; transfer half of the sausage to paper towels to drain.

"The flavors in this recipe are really good. However, I would change the recipe a bit to not include the andouille butter. I found it a bit unappetizing to look at. Not sure what I'd do for a sauce but I'm come up with something."
