Tips For Making 5 Ingredient Shrimp Fettuccine

  • Change up the protein – if you don’t like shrimp you can saute chicken instead.
  • Instead of Fettuccine pasta you can also use spaghetti noodles, penne, or any pasta noodles you may have on hand.
  • Dress this recipe up by adding fresh chopped herbs like thyme, parsley, basil, or oregano for some Italian flavor.
