Description

This garlicky shrimp alfredo bake is kind of similar to the dish at Olive Garden minus the bread crumbs and roasted garlic on top. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 10 oz. angel hair pasta
  • 3 tbsp. light butter, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup of low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 c. part skim mozzarella, divided
  • 1/4 c. plus 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair according to package directions until al dente. Drain and return to pot.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add garlic, shrimp, and 2 tablespoons parsley. Season with salt. Cook until shrimp is pink and no longer opaque, 2 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to a plate. (Keep juices in skillet.)
  4. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to skillet to let melt, then add flour and whisk until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add milk and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Stir in 3/4 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan until creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Return shrimp to skillet. Add cooked angel hair pasta and toss until combined. (Add more milk if mixture is too thick.)
  6. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parm and bake until melty, 5 to 7 minutes. Broil 2 to 3 more minutes until top is golden (watch it carefully so it doesn't burn!).
  7. Garnish with remaining tablespoon parsley and serve.
  8. Makes 6 servings, serving size: 1 cup.
