    • Gradually add the grated Parmesan cheese, stirring constantly until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  4. Combine and Season:
    • Return the cooked fettuccine to the pan with the Alfredo sauce. Toss the pasta in the sauce to coat evenly.
    • Add the cooked shrimp back to the pan and gently toss them with the pasta.
  5. Season and Garnish:
    • Season the dish with salt and black pepper to taste. If you like a bit of heat, you can also sprinkle some red pepper flakes.
    • Garnish the One Pan Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and flavor.
