Creamy alfredo sauce coats the sautéed peppers and shrimp in this delicious diner recipe. While you can feel free to make your own alfredo sauce, using a jar of sauce makes this recipe quick to make and guaranteed to be scrumptious. While this recipe uses fettuccini as the pasta, try using rigatoni or ziti noodles- they will all work well!

  • In a medium sized skillet, melt the butter and then sauté the onions and bell pepper slices in the butter until soft. Add the diced garlic and stir.
  • Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until the shrimp is completely pink.
  • Add the alfredo sauce, heavy cream and parmesan cheese and stir to combine everything. Allow the sauce to come to a boil and then turn off the heat.
  • Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil and cook the fettuccini according to the instructions on the box.
  • Toss the sauce into the cooked pasta making sure to completely coat the pasta in the sauce.
  • Serve while hot!
