Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo


1 hour | 20 min prep

SERVES 4

* 1 lb boneless chicken breast
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
* 7 minced fresh garlic cloves
* 1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined
* 3/4 quart heavy cream
* 1/2 cup butter
* 2 cups parmesan cheese
* 1/4 cup sun-dried tomato
* 1 lb pasta

1. Cook the chicken breast in pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper on while browning. Set on plate to cool when pink is gone. When cool, slice thinly and set aside.
2. Start a big pot water to boil pasta and cook as directed. Set aside.
3. Saute the garlic in one teaspoon olive oil until just brown. Then add shrimp and butter and cook until shrimp starts to turn pink, just a few minutes.
