This recipe is delicious! I basically reformed my old chicken Alfredo recipe into something yummy and clean eating with protein and vegetables. I prepared it with whole wheat pasta. I actually couldn't find fettucini noodles that were whole wheat so I used Linguini noodles. They were really great! If you think you don't like whole wheat pasta, try Linguini. I thought the Angel hair pasta was kind of pasty, but the whole wheat Linguini was so similar in texture to their white flour counterparts.

Shrimp and broccoli Alfredo
- 1 lb shrimp, cooked and peeled
- 1 package of frozen broccoli, steamed
- 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon of flour (I used gluten-free)
- 2 cups of UNSWEETENED almond milk
- 1 cup of parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon of 21 Day Fix All Purpose Seasoning
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium/high heat
- Whisk the flour into the olive oil and let it cook for a minute or two.
- Slowly add the almond milk, whisking the entire time.
- Once the milk starts to steam and boil, lower the heat to medium.
- Add the parmesan cheese a little handful at a time, whisking as you go.
- Once it's thickened, lower the heat to simmer and stir in the broccoli and shrimp.
Serve over your favorite wheat pasta and it tastes like a cheat meal but it's not!

I couldn’t get the sauce to thicken….. How long does this process usually take?
I’m allergic to almonds and I really wanted to try this recipe. Can I use a substitute for the almond milk? I’m using soy milk for shakeology. Is there a better alternative?
Any idea how much sodium is in this.
