INSTRUCTIONS

Alfredo Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan melt butter then add minced garlic and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add all of the other ingredients except for the parmesan cheese and stir vigorously until cream cheese melts and sauce is smooth (Can use an emersion blender here).
  • Add the parmesan cheese and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until it is melted and just starts to thicken.  Stir often until smooth, then remove from the heat to thicken more before serving.

Garlic Shrimp

  • In a large sauté pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic cloves and red pepper flakes and sauté for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Salt and pepper the shrimp and then add to the garlic butter and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Sprinkle with smoked paprika, toss, and set aside.

Zucchini Noodles

  • In same saucepan as you cooked the shrimp, add 1/4 cup butter and then the zucchini noodles, Toss for 3 to 5 minutes. Taste noodles to determine consistency – 3 minutes would be “al dente” – 5 minutes would be softened like “spaghetti.”
  • Add the hot alfredo sauce, toss lightly, and remove from the heat.
  • Plate the zucchini with alfredo sauce and top with shrimp. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro or parsley, extra parmesan, and serve.
