How To Make Cheesy Shrimp Tortellini Alfredo Skillet

  1.  Using a strainer, drain frozen shrimp and pour cold water over it to thaw.
  2. In a pan, melt a small spoon of butter over medium-high heat and cook the shrimp until they are brilliant pink on the top and the center is opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes, taking care not to overcook them in the meantime.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining butter, heavy cream, cream cheese, and leek. It should take no more than 5 minutes to melt and combine everything.
  4. Combine the Parmesan, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Cook the Alfredo sauce over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the tortellini and cook until the tortellini is heated for approximately 5 minutes, then toss the shrimp in the sauce, making sure they are fully coated.
  6. Last but not least, serve your dish immediately after garnishing with parsley.
