Pro Tips:


Fresh Shrimp: Opt for fresh, high-quality shrimp for the best flavor and texture. Look for shrimp that are firm and have a mild, briny scent.


Al Dente Noodles: Be sure not to overcook the fettuccine noodles. They should be slightly firm to the bite (al dente) as they will continue to cook briefly in the sauce.


Consistency Matters: If the Alfredo sauce is too thick, you can thin it out by adding a bit of pasta cooking water. If it’s too thin, simmer it a bit longer to thicken.
