Cook pasta noodles to al dente according to package instructions and set aside
Shrimp are seasoned and sautéed in olive oil and butter. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, then remove from the pan and set aside.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, then add olive oil and sauté shallots and garlic for 1 minute, or until aromatic.
Add broccoli and stir for another minute, then add heavy cream.
Bring the heavy cream to a low boil, then season with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and italian seasoning to taste.
Add Parmesan cheese and borsin cheese and whisk to combine until the cheese has melted, keep the heat on medium low while the cheese melts.
Next, add spinach and cover the pan and allow the spinach to whilt.
After about 3 minutes, the spinach should be all whilted down and the sauce should be thick and creamy.
Turn off the heat and add noodles to the sauce, a little at a time, until the sauce and pasta are all combined.
Top the pasta with the cooked shrimp and top with fresh parsley and more Parmesan cheese to taste and serve.
You don’t want your Alfredo sauce to separate, so keep the heat on medium-high. The sauce takes around 10 minutes to cook in total. Don’t overcook the broccoli and spinach because you want to preserve the nutrients. Along the way, taste the sauce and adjust the spices to your liking.
