Directions:

Step 1: In a medium stock pot, slowly melt 8 oz cream cheese and ½ cup butter over medium heat.  Whisk it every so often while it melts so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn.

Step 2: Once the cream cheese and butter melts, whisk in 1 ½ cups of milk.

Step 3: Next, mix in ½ cup of parmesan cheese; add in 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and ½ teaspoon garlic powder.

Step 4: Whisk to combine. Bring to a low boil and then reduce to a simmer. The alfredo sauce will thicken as it simmers.

Step 5: While the alfredo sauce is simmering, start cooking the mushrooms and shrimp.

Step 6: In a medium skillet melt 2 tablespoons of butter.

Step 7: Add mushrooms.
