Garlic Butter Mushroom Shrimp Pasta Recipe - quick and easy dinner idea with a ton of flavor. Juicy shrimp is simmered in garlic mushroom butter sauce and tossed with fettuccine. This dish is ready in just 15 minutes!
Another quick pasta dinner is my Spaghetti alla Carbonara, which you can serve with Crispy Parmesan Tilapia.
Garlic butter and mushrooms are most definitely one of my favorite flavor combos. Just the smell of garlic and mushrooms sauteing together in butter makes you hungry and you know the dish will be delicious. Point in case, my Garlic Butter Mushroom Pork Chops. The reviews prove that this combo works every time. Why not with seafood? Shrimp is absolutely fantastic with sauteed mushrooms. Add garlic butter to this combo and the whole dish is transformed into a flavor party!
GARLIC MUSHROOM SHRIMP PASTA
This Garlic Butter Mushroom Shrimp Pasta is perfect for a busy weeknight, yet elegant enough to make for a special occasion. It's absolutely delicious and so easy to make!
HOW TO MAKE GARLIC MUSHROOM SHRIMP PASTA?
- Start by preparing pasta according to instructions on the box. Heat up olive oil and butter in skillet.
- Add shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails removed), season with salt and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and set aside.
- Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in the same skillet, add garlic and onion. Saute for 2 minutes until fragrant and onion is almost translucent.
- Add mushrooms and saute until fragrant and soft. Add chicken stock, salt and pepper and bring to simmer. Add shrimp back to skillet and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat, add the last tablespoon of butter and stir in until melted. Serve sauce over cooked noodles.
WHAT PASTA TO USE IN THIS DISH:
Any kind, really. We love fettuccine but you can use linguine, spaghetti, penne, bow tie, etc. Whatever you like, will work. You could also serve the garlic butter mushroom shrimp sauce over vegetable noodles (like zoodles) or over mashed potatoes or cauliflower.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DISH:
large skillet (I used non-stick)
one pot (to cook pasta in)
cutting board and knife (to prep the veggies)
15-Minute Creamy Tuscan Shrimp
Creamy Mushroom Garlic Chicken (can be served over potatoes or pasta)
Garlic Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Cathy Reynolds says
I changed it up a little. I used German eggs noodles. They are cut like Fettuccine. I add some chicken leg meat and the fresh chicken broth. At the end added parmesan cheese on toss sauce in the noodles. Wonderful!
Jerry B says
I'll give it a go Anna.
I hope you enjoy it, Jerry!
So easy to make but more importantly, delicious. Used fresh angel hair pasta, my favourite. Treated myself and was totally satisfied with the results. The Pinot Grigio was an excellent accompaniment.
Mike Ratajski says
This was really tasty! I love garlic so I increased the cloves to five. I cooked it according to your directions and sprinkled it with parmesan. I'd definitely make this again. It's simple and quick.
Thank you so much, Mike! I am glad the pasta was a hit!
Theresa Capri says
This recipe was very good. I added frozen peas and sundried tomatoes and a squeeze of lemon juice. I think it would have come together even a little better if I would have had some sour cream on hand, just a spoon or two of it might have made it just a little better. I did add just a touch of spruce tip mayonnaise that I had made and it perked this dish up. All in all it was good and I would try it again if I have a little sour cream next time. Thank you for this recipe!!
Thank you for making my recipe, Theresa!
Deb H says
Double thumbs up, per my husband. Made no changes to recipe as I typically like to make as directed and then decide what, if my changes to make based upon our preferences. It was great as it! Portobello mushrooms make this dish earthy and to add too much will detract from the role these mushrooms play in the dish.
I am so glad the pasta was a hit! Thank you, Deb!
Betsi Bauer says
Can I substitute mild Italian sausage. For the shrimp?
Hi Betsi! I thank that should work. Let me know if you make it!
Lauren J. says
Added some red pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon 🍋 to each plate, tastes like classic shrimp scampi. I had more mushrooms than shrimp and that's just the way I like it.
Perfect! Thank you for making my recipe, Lauren!
Yes to the lemon! Brought all the flavors out and tied it all together. Served it over mashed cauliflower, was delicious!!!
Karla K says
Made this because it looked so good and had some nice shrimps and mushrooms. Added turmeric when I cooked shrimp. And basil to the onion, garlic step. Added the parmesan cheese during last step butter add. Then added some fresh cut beefsteak tomatoes mixed with fresh parsley on top after it was plated.
Lauren A says
I want to make this recipe BADLY, I'm just wondering if there is any way to cut back on the butter without losing the beauty of the final result. I'm still quarantining with my parents and my mother can't take much butter as she had a heart attack a few years back. I'd love any suggestions!
Peg P says
When I decided to make fresh pasta last night, I went looking for a recipe on line. We absolutely loved this recipe! It's a keeper!
Yay! I am so glad! Thank you, Peg!
Sheila Norman says
I am going to make this tonight for dinner serving 8 in our family.
I got to say I don’t typically rate many of the recipes I’ve tried, but really wanted to share how great it turned out. I Made this tonight! Needed to use up some mushrooms that were just about to go bad. The ONLY addition to the recipe was I added red pepper flakes to the sauce! (The onion, garlic, butter, chicken stock when simmering.). And WOW it was a nice punch of added flavor. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much, Jeannie! I am so happy to know you enjoyed the pasta!
I made this exactly as written and it became an instant favorite!! Great recipe!
Paula Swanson says
We had a fondue party last night and had some shrimp & mushrooms leftover. So I went in search of a simple but tasty recipe to use them up today. This one popped up and I’m glad it did. Yumm!! Thanks!!
Will vegetable broth change the original flavor?
I don't think so.
I had Mushrooms about to go bad and shrimp that I didn't have a recipe for so I started looking for a shrimp & Mushrooms recipe this one sounds really good.. the reviews made it sound great might need to call company over to help me eat
I have been making a simple pasta shrimp toss for years and usually add mushrooms but I wanted a light sauce to add to it. After searching Pinterest, I found Anna’s recipe and we love it! It was simple to make and was just what I was looking for!!! it’s a keeper!!! Thank you Anna!!!
Sue G says
Really loved this recipe! Saw it and new it would be good. Added some fresh herbs (it is summer) and fresh parmesan. Will definitely make again. Thanks Anna!
Thank you, Sue! I am so glad you love this pasta!
Rose Turner says
easy and delicious. I added sausage and water with less sale instead of broth.
Maria-Jose Bravo says
We just made this in Copenhagen. We had an important guest over and needed to make something quick so this was our choice. The prawns were large, frozen and with tails but that was not a problem. There was a good amount of juice from the prawns and mushrooms which we reserved and later used as broth. We added mascarpone and spinach and it was delightful. We will definitely make it again. Yum!!!!!
A. Furnish says
Got big thumbs up from people who are not big noodle lovers! Said was very good! I just added some Parmesan cheese on top!
That's wonderful! Thank you for making my recipe!
Sound so delicious! Any way to make ahead for a small party?
Easy, quick, and absolutely delicious! Perfect for a summer time meal. Without overheating the kitchen. We added asparagus and lemon. Thanks for the recipe. It will be a repeat favorite!
Thank you so much, Angel! I am glad it was a hit!
