Shrimp Alfredo is easy to whip up and the options for veggie combos are endless! I love recipes that use ingredients I have on hand. Or if I don’t, then I can easily substitute with something I do. I know Alfredo doesn’t really scream summertime but I love this dish because of the summer vegetables and shrimp.
I’m not an overly big seafood lover, but from time to time I enjoy some salmon or a crab cake. I love this dish because the addition of garden vegetables and pasta and the coat of creamy Alfredo sauce make this seafood dish not so seafood-y. And if you don’t want shrimp at all, you can easily swap it out for chicken.
When I am wanting an even lighter version, I blend together olive oil and garlic, then drizzle it over the pasta instead of the alfredo sauce. It’s a simple enough dish to whip up and it takes less than an hour to do so.
