Using shrimp that have already been cooked saves time without sacrificing flavor! The sauce is made from only a few staple ingredients and takes just minutes to make. Because this recipe comes together really quickly, you will want to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go.
Start boiling the water for pasta as soon as possible. If you are using frozen shrimp, make sure they are completely thawed before you begin. Whisk together the 2 Tablespoons of stock and flour and set aside. Chop the parsley and set aside as well.
As soon as the water for the pasta starts boiling, add the pasta and cook according to the directions on the package.
In the meantime, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant, then add the remaining stock and heavy cream. Whisk in the flour mixture and Parmesan cheese. Keep whisking to prevent lumps. Turn the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, then lower and simmer until thickened, whisking frequently. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix in the shrimp and cooked pasta and heat through.
It doesn’t take much to make this dish look as good as it tastes! Simply add the pasta to a large pasta bowl and toss to evenly distribute the shrimp. Top with fresh, chopped parsley. Serve hot.
To change things up a bit try adding a cup of peas to the mixture, or top with breadcrumbs for some added texture. This meal also pairs well with garlic bread.
