If you follow the Creole Contessa blog, you know how much I love, love, love, Greek food!
I could eat Greek food pretty much everyday and never complain or get tired of it. I also love Italian food and Alfredo sauce.
My Greek Shrimp Alfredo is the best of both worlds!
I decided I wanted to do something a little different than my traditional Creole Shrimp Scampi Alfredo. This lead me to create this masterpiece.
I took everything I love about Greek food, which is oregano, olive oil, lemons, and Greek yogurt and I tell you, this is beyond delicious.
You might wonder why my Alfredo sauce is not white. It’s because I included not only parmigiano reggiano and Romano cheeses, I added a little sharp cheese to increase the depth of flavor.
Hey, I almost sound like a real chef….lol.
I love to add a little sharp cheese whenever I make a white sauce, it really does kick the flavor up!
Oh, and don’t forget the paprika, that also played a roll in the color being so pretty.
Grab some garlic bread and let’s EAT!
