Sunday supper doesn’t have to be time-consuming.  It doesn’t have to be a big, fancy meal that takes hours to make.  The entire premise is getting your family and friends together and sharing great food.  This 15 minute Shrimp Alfredo recipe is perfect for a Sunday supper or quick weeknight meal.

I recently made this Creamy Shrimp Pasta for a Sunday Supper that I hosted.  You can sign up to get calendar reminders to host your own Sunday Supper here.

Why This Shrimp Alfredo Recipe Works

Fettuccini alfredo is one of those recipes that’s great on its own but when you add a protein like shrimp or chicken, it takes it up a notch.  This easy 15-minute recipe comes together quickly and is incredibly creamy and rich.  Plus, I’m going to show you how to lighten it up with half of the fat and calories of traditional alfredo.

It also comes together very quickly because we’re using shrimp – one of my favorite quick-cooking proteins.  Shrimp only takes minutes to cook and are the perfect addition to this recipe.

A Lighter Creamy Alfredo Sauce

One of the best things about this recipe is it uses New Bertolli Creamy Alfredo with Cauliflower & Milk.  It’s a combination of cauliflower, fresh milk, and aged parmesan for a lighter take on classic Alfredo sauce.  It’s a delicious sauce that you would expect from Bertolli but with half the fat and calories.

Bertolli Creamy Alfredo with Cauliflower & Milk:

My family loved the taste and flavor of Bertolli Creamy Alfredo with Cauliflower & Milk.  In fact, they didn’t even realize it was made with cauliflower.  It is a creamy alfredo sauce that you would expect from a brand like Bertolli.

Tips for Hosting Sunday Supper

Sunday supper is one of my favorite meals.  I love getting my family and friends together to share a meal and connect.  We spend most of our week running from activity to activity so it’s nice to have a meal where we can slow down and enjoy the food and company.

Have company over for dinner, however, can feel like a big undertaking.  We feel pressured to pull out all of the stops and make a big fancy meal.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.

This Shrimp Alfredo recipe is a meal that seems like you fussed when really, it only takes 15 minutes.  Make a quick and easy, but incredibly delicious recipe, helps to make it fun and relaxing it was to host family or friends for a Sunday Supper.

  1. Hello. At one place it states to cook the shrimp 2 – 3 minutes per side, at another place it states 3 – 4. Please confirm which one is correct; I don’t want to over/under cook the shrimp. It states to add the olive oil and butter to the pan but the recipe doesn’t say how much butter. Please confirm. Thanks!!

    • The Shrimp should take about three minutes per side. It depends upon the size of the shrimp that you are using. Once it is a pinkish color and no longer translucent it is done!
