Garlic shrimp with penne pasta and a homemade alfredo sauce, all in one pot.
Heat two tablespoons olive oil in large sauté pan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook 3-4 minutes, until garlic starts to soften but not brown. Add shrimp and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook shrimp just until it turns pink. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over shrimp, then sprinkle with parsley. Transfer shrimp and garlic mixture, scraping out all liquid into a bowl and cover to keep warm.
In same pan, add uncooked pasta, 2 tablespoon oil oil, chicken broth, heavy cream, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer covered for about 15 mminutes, or until pasta is al dente.
Remove from heat and gradually stir in parmesan cheese followed by shrimp and garlic mixture. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
Avoid using pre shredded parmesan cheese as it will not melt smoothly into sauce.
