Scampi or Alfredo Sauce Recipes

Thursday, April 30, 2020
Here are two basic recipes, one is a scampi sauce and the other is alfredo both are quick, easy and fabulous with pasta and some other additions we like with many suggestions below.


We love our scampi or alfredo with seafood, shrimp and crab are the two favorites.


For those who have allergies sauteed boneless chicken breast is the alternative of choice in our home, however you can substitute whatever boneless meats you prefer.


The first recipe is a Shrimp and Broccoli Alfredo that's a cream sauce with a hint of garlic.


The bonus recipe is a scampi butter and garlic sauce not creamy at all with shrimp and spinach.


Those are just suggestions of how we love these sauces tossed in pasta another favorite is Seafood Scampi with Lemon Sauce over pasta we make around the Christmas holiday.


I sometimes leave the sauces plain and split it since one son isn't a seafood lover and the other along with my husband loves seafood.


Mix and match, however, your family likes theirs with these easy quick sauces.


My Grandmother made a different style Authentic Alfredo that was a staple when she grew up in Italy and has no cream in it like the American version.


Scroll down to these two easy sauce recipes to print them off and you can use any pasta your family prefers.

Endless Variations To These Sauces


As I mentioned, the sauces are a basic recipe.


Anything can go into them and you can leave them plain for a vegetarian style or with any meat or seafood you like.


The sauces are unique in characteristic one being light and buttery with a little wine and the other sauce is thick and creamy.


Both are the perfect match over your favorite cooked pasta.
