Shrimp Pasta Alfredo

My son loves any recipe with Alfredo sauce. As a bachelor, shrimp pasta was one of the first recipes he learned to prepare. Now his children ask for it regularly. Gail Lucas, Olive Branch, Mississippi

    Alfredo Sauce is so quick

    It's just as easy to make this from scratch. I'd do this differently. I know where I can get fresh Alfredo sauce if I don't want to make my own, and I would be tempted to add sliced mushrooms and chopped prosciutto.

    I thought this was a great Lenten recipe. My family loved it. It was easy enough to make after working all day on Friday. And tasty.

    I'm always looking for recipes that go together quickly for those days where time is short and this is perfect. It's also great for kids learning to cook.

    This was so easy to make. Just five ingredients & it was delicious. I especially liked the way the peas kept their flavor. Shared it with my daughter & she agreed it was a keeper recipe.

    I'm learning that when the magazine calls something a "fast fix" (for supper) it is usually bland! This was very bland. Made homemade alfredo sauce (just too easy to do and I know what I'm eating).

    My family loved this recipe. Though it could probably do with more seasoning.

    My husband and kids really liked it. I thought it needed more seasoning, maybe fresh basil or Italian Seasoning.

    I made homemade alfredo sauce and homemade pasta and thought this was a very good dish. Using a jar of alfredo and packaged pasta would be a real time saver. I love creamed peas so that was a bonus for me. Thanks for the inspiration.
