Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 1 lb large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 8 oz fettuccini pasta
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped, for garnish)

Where to Find Specific Items

  • Shrimp: Fresh or frozen shrimp can be found at your local seafood market or the seafood section of your grocery store.
  • Cheese and heavy cream are available in the dairy section of most supermarkets.
  • Pasta and olive oil are typically stocked in the pasta aisle.

Step-by-Step Preparation Instructions

Step 1: Prepping the Shrimp

  1. Peel and Devein Shrimp:
  • If using fresh shrimp, peel off the shells and remove the vein along the back by making a shallow cut with a paring knife. Rinse under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2: Cooking the Shrimp

  1. Sauté Shrimp:
  • Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until pink and opaque. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3: Preparing the Alfredo Sauce

  1. Make the Alfredo Sauce:
  • In the same skillet, melt 2 tbsp of butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Pour in the heavy cream, stirring continuously. Gradually add the grated Parmesan cheese, whisking until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Cooking the Pasta

  1. Cook the Pasta:
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccini pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Step 5: Layering the Casserole

  1. Layer the Ingredients:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread half of the cooked pasta evenly on the bottom. Pour half of the Alfredo sauce over the pasta, followed by half of the cooked shrimp. Repeat the layers with the remaining pasta, sauce, and shrimp. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.

Step 6: Baking the Casserole

  1. Bake the Casserole:
  • Place the prepared baking dish in the preheated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

Serving Suggestions

Serve your Shrimp Alfredo Casserole hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley. Pair it with a simple green salad or garlic bread to complete the meal.

Storage and Reheating Tips

  • Storage:
  • Allow the casserole to cool completely, then cover tightly with plastic wrap or foil. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheating:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Cover the casserole with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat individual portions in the microwave.
