Stir in cream cheese and chicken broth until smooth, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add more chicken broth as needed until desired consistency is reached.

  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8x8 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine shrimp, pasta, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, red pepper flakes and alfredo sauce. Add pasta mixture to prepared baking dish and top with Parmesan.
  • Place into oven and bake until golden brown and cheese has melted, about 10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
