Fettuccini Alfredo with Sauteed Shrimp

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

I made this dish last night for dinner, and it was awesome! I loved the contrast of flavors and textures – the sweet onions and peppers, the savory shrimp, and the creamy Alfredo sauce. I used small shrimp for this recipe because they cook more quickly, but any size shrimp would work.
