  • 150 grams dried pasta
  • 200 to 300 grams shrimps shelled and deveined
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 and 1/2 cups shredded cheese I used Gouda but any sharp cheese will be good
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chopped parsley


  • Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling water. Drain.
  • Melt the butter in a pan. Add the shrimps and cook just until they change color. Pour in the cream. Add the grated cheese. Cook, stirring, just until the sauce bubbles and the cheese melts. Turn off the heat. Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper, as needed.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the sauce. Sprinkle the parsley. Toss a few times. Serve the mac and cheese with shrimps at once.
