This cozy and delicious shrimp alfredo comes together all in one pot for easy clean-up. Featuring succulent shrimp and al dente linguine coated in a rich and creamy parmesan sauce. One-pot shrimp alfredo pasta is a simple, satisfying dinner that the whole family will love.
With this effortless one-pot meal, the pasta cooks right in the creamy sauce, so you won’t have to clean extra pots, lids and colanders. That’s a win for any busy cook! We love the GoodCook Deep Sauté Pan With Lid for corralling all of the ingredients and cooking up this recipe. It’s roomy enough to fit a family dinner, has an easy-to-clean non-stick interior and comes with a tight-fitting glass lid.
This recipe starts with deveining the shrimp. Have you ever noticed the thin, black string on the back of a shrimp? It’s the shrimp’s digestive tract, and the dark color means it’s filled with grit. Don’t worry – the vein is not harmful if eaten, but your dish will look more appealing without the black veins. It may sound like a lot of work to prep the shrimp, but the GoodCook Shrimp Deveiner takes care of the task in minutes! It features an ergonomic handle and a stainless steel tip that quickly works to remove the vein.
Once the shrimp is deveined, it’s sauteed with butter and garlic until pink and curled, then set aside.
How to know when the shrimp is cooked
Shrimp doesn’t take long to cook. If you purchase grey colored shrimp, they are uncooked. You’ll know when they’re done when they turn pink and their shape curls. This typically takes 3-4 minutes for average-sized shrimp. You don’t want to overcook shrimp or they’ll be rubbery.
The linguine goes in the GoodCook Deep Sauté Pan With Lid along with the garlic powder, parmesan cheese, cream and broth. It all cooks for 12-15 minutes until the pasta is tender. Add the shrimp, season to taste, use a GoodCook Nylon Turner to serve, and enjoy!
