Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Alfredo - 15.3g Carbs, 5.6g Sugar

{Nutrition DOES NOT INCLUDE NOODLES/PASTA! Consider spiralized veggies such as zucchini!}


    Rinse your shrimp well in a colander before cooking so you don't get a "fishy" taste in your sauce.
    Stir the garlic so it doesn't burn. If it gets too brown it will be bitter.
    Keep stirring when you pour the milk mixture in, you don't want it to burn.
    Use a heavy bottomed pot to help reduce the likelihood of scorched milk.
    If you don't eat all of it in one sitting, when reheating add milk to get to the desired consistency as it will get thicker!
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Total Time: 30 min

2 cups 2% milk
4 oz cream cheese
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp minced garlic
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese OR 3 cheese blend
1/3 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
Pepper, to taste
1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
Parsley, to garnish

Using a hand mixer or blender, mix together the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt until smooth, set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter and add garlic. Saute garlic for about a minute, then add in peeled and deveined shrimp.

Cook 3-5 minutes, until pink, and just barely cooked through.

Remove shrimp from pan, leave garlic and butter drippings in saucepan.

Add milk mixture to the pan, and stir for 4 minutes on medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and keep stirring for about 6 more minutes until is starts to thicken.

Remove from heat, add grated cheese and Parmesan. Cover, let stand for about 5 minutes.

Add shrimp into sauce and let stand another 5 minutes.

Serve over noodles of choice, I chose fettuccine. (1 lb package)
