    Drum roll please… with this Easy Shrimp Pasta, I’ve finally found a seafood dish that the whole family adores! That’s right – including the kids! The combination of juicy shrimp with a creamy, garlic sauce and forkfuls of pasta is a definite crowd-pleaser and I’m now getting regular requests for this from my little ones. Another bonus is that despite the easy method, this shrimp dish looks like something you might order in a fancy Italian restaurant!

    So, how to cook Easy Creamy Shrimp Pasta?

    Steps

    Cook the pasta

    Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the fettuccine. Cook according to the instructions on the packet until al-dente.

    Cook the shrimp

    Once the pasta is on to cook, season the shrimp with the salt, pepper, and paprika. Heat the oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat, before adding the shrimp and cooking for 2 minutes on each side. When ready (they should turn pink), quickly take them out of the pan so they don’t overcook.

    Start the sauce

    Using the shrimp pan, melt the butter and add the onion. Sauté until it becomes translucent, around 3-5 minutes, stirring regularly. Then add the garlic and fry for another minute. Pour in the wine, bring to the boil and reduce until only about a quarter of the liquid remains.

    Add the cheese and cream

    Pour the cream into the pan, bring the mixture to the boil and then lower the heat to a simmer for two minutes. Tip in the cheese and stir it until the sauce is smooth. Keep it at a simmer for just another minute or so while you check the seasoning - you can add more salt, pepper or paprika if you like - then take it off the heat.

    Combine and serve

    Add the shrimp and drained fettuccine to the pot and give the whole thing a good toss so everything is well coated in the sauce. Serve with a grind of black pepper, a garnish of parsley and some extra Parmesan.
