For the Sauce:
4 tbsp butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup flour
3 cups warmed milk
Red pepper flakes
A dash of creole seasoning
Begin by cooking the cheese tortellini according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain and set them aside.
Prepare your shrimp. You can use as many as you like. Make sure they’re peeled and deveined.
In a large saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
Stir in 1/4 cup of flour to create a roux. Cook for a few minutes until it’s light golden in color.
Gradually whisk in 3 cups of warmed milk. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens and becomes smooth.
Season the sauce with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, red pepper flakes, and a dash of creole seasoning. Adjust these seasonings to suit your taste.
Add the prepared shrimp to the sauce and cook until they turn pink and are fully cooked. This should only take a few minutes. Be careful not to overcook them.
Combine the cooked cheese tortellini with the shrimp and sauce in the saucepan. Gently stir to coat everything with the creamy Alfredo sauce.
Allow everything to heat through for a couple of minutes, ensuring the shrimp and tortellini are well coated with the sauce.
