Shrimp Fettucini Alfredo

"What do you want for dinner tonight?" OR "What's your favorite thing that mommy makes?"  Either of those questions will generate the same response from Ani Pate...FETTUCINI ALFREDO!  Now, I don't know who this "Alfredo" guy is, or why they named a sauce after him and paired it perfectly with pasta...but I'm glad his momma had him!  My family all but licks their plate when finished with dinner (I am fairly certain that some of them have when I'm not looking)!

I am not a big fan of jarred alfredo sauce so I am super excited to let you in on this recipe.  It's mega easy and the flavor difference is well worth the LITTLE extra effort.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Here we are!

Meet my handsome hubby...Ian.  Everything a girl could ask for...including a really hot accent!  Ian farms... ALL DAY...and he loves it!  He also loves to lick his finger and stick it in any unprotected ear within 100 yrds.  Never a dull moment!

This is Abi!  Beautiful only begins to describe her...pain in the patoot usually ends the description.  She is  good for a laugh, a quick witted remark, and strives diligently to be "odd" (she is getting better and better at it).

This is lil Ani Pate!  Also beautiful and VERY artsy fartsy!  Oh the drama that embodies this's incredible...sometimes I just stare in amazement.  Ani forgets NOTHING!

Here's Matt!  I have a really nice photo of him too but this one describes him best...he literally believes that he is a cop...and he WILL "under arrest you!"  Matthew has NO filter for his mouth & says EVERYTHING that is on his mind.  At home this is public it's mortifying!

Oh my sweet Adriaan!  Our newest family member.  He is just so yummy I could eat him, however, he has more fat content than any box of chocolate or gallon of ice I'll just squeeze his cheeks!
