Easy Skinny Shrimp Alfredo Recipe


So I know I shared a recipe yesterday, but that was because I was behind on getting that one posted. LIFE you guys. LIFE. It can be s chaotic and crazy sometimes! I know you can relate. I also feel like now is a good time to thank you guys for always dealing with me. 

Today I'm sharing a Skinny Shrimp Alfredo Recipe that has been highly requested. What makes it a Skinny recipe? Well, we'll use Greek Yogurt as a base VS. Alfredo sauce. We're not on a diet or anything but I actually prefer the less heavy taste of using Greek Yogurt as a base for the sauce. I think you will too. 

Every Wednesday here on the blog I'm going to share a recipe with you guys that our super picky family is enjoying. I'll make it the following night (Thursday) on my Instagram for ya'll to see and maybe even follow along! 
So here's the deal for Skinny Shrimp Alfredo it's fairly easy, and a nice yummy pasta dish, pair it with garlic bread and a salad for a yummy meal!

What you need: 
16oz uncooked linguine 
1lb shrimp (cooked, tail off)
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
3/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cup parmigiano-reggiano 
1 tablespoon EVOO 
Salt & Peppa

Extras-
Red Pepper Flakes 
Nutmeg

This recipe is fairly easy and doesn't require a ton of prep which I LOVE. First things first.

Bring a pot of water to a boil & then cook noodles for 8-10 minutes. Don't overcook! (Not saying that from experience or anything..)

While the water is getting hot- start prepping and mixing your sauce. Begin by mixing up your EVOO, garlic, salt & pepper & onions in a medium saucepan over medium heat, be careful not to burn the garlic. Because we all know that's gross. (Not but seriously, the garlic will become biter and ruin the whole dish!)

While the onions and garlic are becoming one, MY FAVORITE! whisk together cornstarch, nutmeg, and chicken broth in a small bowl. Set this aside for future use.

Once the onions are shiny and not all the way see-through add the shrimp, you can use uncooked shrimp but I always used cooked just because I'm weird about seafood. Cooking time is about the same but with the cooked shrimp I've found it cooks a little faster (good for those nights when I just wanna put dinner on the table and enjoy my wine!) Remove Shrimp to a holding area (like the microwave) so they don't overcook. 
Crank up the heat on the onions + garlic left in the pan and add your cornstarch mixture to the pan. Whisk occasionally, and bring to a simmer. Slowly, add the parm, whisking as you go. Once the cheese has melted, remove from heat and whisk in the Greek yogurt until the sauce is creamy and smooth!
Drain and rinse your pasta. Add shrimp back to the “finished” sauce pan. Toss pasta with sauce in large bowl or directly in the pan, like me! Plate it up, sprinkle with parsley, and eat up!

YUM! ENJOY!

    1. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com ...

      I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
