There is no better comfort food than a creamy and decadent cheese sauce with rich bits of salty cheese. It’s true, alfredo sauce just cannot be topped…but it certainly can be improved upon, simplified, and healthied up. It just takes a few minor adjustments and some quick cooking tips to make this one pot shrimp Alfredo!
My absolute favorite part of this one pan recipe is that it goes from raw shrimp to a creamy sauce so quickly! Because you are cooking everything in a series of quick steps, getting dinner on the table and in your belly is less of a marathon and more of a sprint. Plus, you can put this sweet and salty sauce on top of any low-carb vegetable and it’s amazing. Pictured below is the sauce and shrimp over a bed of fiber packed greens but you could do anything from cauliflower rice to zoodles.
The second most appealing alteration of this recipe is that it uses a mixture of milk and cream cheese as the sauce to take out the agonizing “cooking down” portion of making alfredo. Just a little butter, cream cheese, milk, and Parmesan makes this sauce come together in a snap. Dried herbs are also perfect for a quick meal with minimal prep work and they are easy to keep on hand!
