Shrimp Linguine Alfredo

IMG_1136

This recipe is so easy to make even for beginners! I have simple steps for each process of the recipe. I have made pasta with Alfredo many different ways. This recipe I adapted from a Campbell Soup recipe years ago. I use to always use parmesan cheese in a jar from the store, but ever since I tasted what a block of parmesan cheese that I grate myself tastes like, I will never go back. It greatly enhances the flavor of every recipe I have used it in. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with buying the jar of parmesan cheese, I did it for years and still have a jar in my refrigerator. My grandkids love when I make spaghetti and they pour it on!
