Spicy Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

I make this spicy shrimp pasta a lot because it's a something my family never seems to get tired of. The sauce is so fast to make I can get it done while the fettuccine is cooking. In the past, I have added red peppers and spinach, but who's to say you could not add mushrooms or more or less spice. —Stephanie Beluk, Sharpsburg, Georgia

    Very good, quick and easy. I thought of cutting the recipe in half because there is only two of us. Certainly glad I didn't. We ate about half of it! I also deveined and seeded the serrano. BIG MISTAKE! It was a little spicy, but, for us, needed more; either with the seeds and veins, or a second serrano.
