Shrimp Alfredo

This is actually the first time I have made homemade Alfredo sauce and now after I have made and ate it I am not quite sure what I was thinking all those years buying the jarred stuff. I mean this is an extremely easy sauce to prepare and hands down the best tasting one. You can easily substitute chicken for the shrimp if you would prefer. And what else would pair well with this pasta? Well, a crunchy green salad and a side of garlic bread of course.

7 tablespoons butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup mozzarella-cheddar mixed cheese
12 ounces of farfalle pasta, cooked per package directions
1 pound shrimp, cleaned

1. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add 2 tablespoons butter and 1 garlic clove. Add shrimp cooking until no long pink, about 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a saute pan on medium heat add remaining butter and garlic. Cook until melted then add pepper, Parmesan and cream, mix well. Mix until thickened about 3 minutes then add shredded cheese. Mix until melted then remove from heat.

3. In a large bowl or serving platter toss pasta, shrimp and sauce together until well combined. Serve.

Yields: 4-6 servings
