Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Shrimp (fresh is best, but frozen works too)
  • Garlic (because garlic makes everything better)
  • Red Bell Pepper (adds a pop of color and sweetness)
  • Zucchini and Squash (hello, veggies!)
  • Broccoli (green goodness)
  • Parmesan Cheese (because cheese is life)
  • Heavy Cream (for that creamy goodness)
  • Fettuccine Pasta

Prep Like a Pro

First things first, let’s get everything ready. Peel and devein your shrimp if needed, mince that garlic, and chop up your veggies into bite-sized pieces. Don’t forget to grate some fresh parmesan cheese because, well, cheese.

Sizzle and Saute

Heat up some olive oil in a skillet and toss in your veggies (leave the squash for the end so it doesn’t get soggy) add the minced garlic after a minute or two and let everything get friendly. Next, move the veggies to one side of the pan and then add in your shrimp and cook them until they turn pink and delicious, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp then set aside, continue to cook veggies and built the sauce.

Pasta Perfection

While your veggies are getting all cozy, cook up your fettuccine according to the package instructions. Once it’s perfectly al dente, drain it and keep a cup of that starchy cooking water handy.

Bring It All Together

To your veggies, pour in some heavy cream and sprinkle in that parmesan cheese, oh don’t forget the butter. Give everything a good toss until the pasta is coated in creamy, cheesy goodness. If the sauce looks too thick, add in some of that reserved pasta water until it’s just right. Season to taste with extra salt, pepper, smoked paprika and Italian seasoning for good measure. I like to add the shrimp and squash at the end when the sauce hasn’t gotten too thick just let. Let everything marry for a few more minutes and then serve up!

Serve and Enjoy
