Hey , everyone .

It's Natasha of Natasha's kitchen dot com .

And today we're making a major comfort food .

It's creamy shrimp , Alfredo .

The sauce is so flavorful and tastes like fine dining , but it's one of the easiest dinners you'll make .

Let's get right into it .

Start by cooking three quarters of a pound of fettuccini noodles in salted water according to the package instructions , once the noodles are al dente drain but do not rinse while the pasta's cooking start on your shrimp .

Pat dry a pound of shrimp with paper towels .

Then season with half a teaspoon of salt .

A quarter teaspoon of paprika and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper .

Then give it a quick stir place a large pan over medium high heat and add a tablespoon of oil .

Once the oil is hot , add the shrimp in a single layer and cook about two minutes per side or just until cooked through , make sure to remove your shrimp from the pan .

So they don't overcook .

Finally chop half of a medium onion and in the same hot skillet , add two tablespoons of butter along with the chopped onion and saute for about five minutes or until soft and golden mince , one garlic clove and add it to the pan stirring for about a minute or until fragrant .

Now , the fun part , add one third cup of white wine and I'm using a chardonnay .

It's not a lot of wine , but it adds so much amazing flavor .

Cook that down until the liquid has mostly evaporated .

Then add two cups of cream , bring the cream to a simmer and cook another two minutes next , Sprinkle the top with one third cup of Parmesan cheese stir until the cheese melts and the Alfredo sauce is smooth and it comes just to a light simmer .

Do not boil , then turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste .

Add the cooked pasta and shrimp and stir until the noodles are well coated in that creamy Alfredo sauce .
