Important Notes on Chicken Alfredo with Shrimp Pasta

  • You can create a wonderful chicken and shrimp penne alfredo by replacing the fettuccine with tortellini or penne.
  • When you turn the shrimp to finish cooking it, you may add fresh minced garlic.
  • The sauce is creamy and delicious on its own, but a little of cayenne pepper will bring the flavors to life!
  • Add frozen peas and red pepper flakes to the mix.


  • I used Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, but if you can’t get it, a normal block of parmesan would suffice.
  • You may add some bacon pieces to add some crunch.
  • Use half & half instead of heavy cream
  • Garlic, mushrooms, broccoli, and shallots are all good additions.

  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • peeled and deveined 3/4 pound medium/large shrimp (approximately 16), tails removed (if frozen, thawed)
  • fettuccine, 12 oz.
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (about 8 tbsp)
  • 2 quarts of thick cream (or half and half)
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (or grated Romano cheese)
  • cajun seasoning (1/2 – 1 tbsp)
  • black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • salt kosher
  • 2 pinches freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (to cook and stir)


  1. Heat a large saucepan over high heat, then add the water and salt and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions until cooked or al dente but still firm.
  3. To prevent sticking, strain and toss with a little olive oil.
  4. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper after patting them dry with a paper towel.
  5. Cajun spice, salt, and pepper are used to season the chicken.
  6. Heat 2 tbsp butter in a large pan over medium heat, then add the shrimp, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through, turning halfway through. Place in a mixing dish and put aside.
  7. Add olive oil or butter to the same pan. Cook for 5-8 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside and fully cooked. Remove from the equation.
  8. Reduce to medium-low heat and stir in the remaining butter. With a wooden spoon, scrape any pieces stuck to the bottom of the skillet. When the butter is completely melted, whisk in the cream and nutmeg, then reduce the heat to low and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is whisked into the sauce. Toss in the cooked shrimp, chicken, and spaghetti until everything is thoroughly combined.
  10. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve immediately with bacon pieces as a garnish.
