Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine Replace the olive oil with 3 tablespoons of butter. Add the juice of one lemon and 1 teaspoon of lemon zest to the pan along with the garlic. Increase the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. Omit the Parmesan cheese and top with fresh parsley instead.

Garlic Roasted Broccoli - A simple side dish that is packed with flavor and pairs perfectly with this creamy shrimp fettuccine. Roasting the broccoli brings out its natural sweetness and the garlic adds a delicious depth of flavor.

Roasted Parmesan Potatoes: Roasted Parmesan Potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to this creamy shrimp fettuccine. The potatoes are roasted until they are golden and crispy, then topped with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for an extra layer of flavor. The potatoes provide a nice contrast to the creamy pasta and add a touch of crunch to the meal.

We loved this! So, so easy to make, with terrific results! We used fresh fettucine noodles from the deli case, and admit to having used extra butter and olive oil to coat the noodles a little more. And of course, doubling the garlic! (The vampires will never get us - LOL). Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe!

This is a tasty and very quick to make. We had a little trouble getting the ingredients to mix well together. We are used to having a lot of sauce on pasta dishes so that is an adjustment for this recipe.
