- 1 lbs. medium sized shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 10 oz. white button mushrooms, sliced
- 1 lbs. fettuccine
- 2 scallions, sliced thinly
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup or 4 oz Romano cheese, grated
- 2 cups or 16 oz Alfredo sauce
- Lemon butter sauce
- 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and white pepper
- Boil water on a large pot by using high heat and put a pinch of salt for taste.
- While the water is boiled, create the sauce because it needs to be finished around the similar time as pasta. Put 1 tbsp. of extra-virgin olive oil in large skillet by using medium level heat. Put white button mushroom, then stir occasionally to cook for roughly 5 minutes before you move it to a bowl.
- Using the remaining extra-virgin olive oil on the skillet, put shrimp inside. Stir occasionally to cook for roughly 3 minutes or until the shrimp turns nearly opaque evenly. Put garlic inside and stir every now and then for 1 minute or until the garlic has softened up.
- Put the white button mushroom again on the skillet. Add scallions and lemon butter sauce, then turn the heat to very low level. Stir around for 30 seconds until the sauce is smooth and warm, but not up to the point it melts and hot. Add white pepper and salt then put it aside.
- Put fettuccine pasta into a pot of boiling water and stir occasionally to detach the strands. You may simply cook it according to the directions on the package, then drain it and put it on cooking pot to combine with the Alfredo sauce and grated Romano cheese.
- Divide the pasta into 4 bowls of serving. Top the dishes with shrimp and additional Romano cheese, then serve while they still warm.
