    bellisima's Note:

    Came up with this one a few summers ago when I wanted to impress a newly acquired "beau". He loved it, I hated him ....I dumped him but kept the recipe. Creamy & cheesy, this one isn't low in calories but it is pretty quick. Basically an Alfredo recipe but really garlic-ed up. I've also made this w/crayfish once & it was just as good.

    1. 1
      In large skillet slowly melt the butter over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      While it's melting add the olive oil (this should keep it from burning).
    3. 3
      Butter/oil should be bubbly but not browned.
    4. 4
      Brown the garlic in the butter/olive oil, tossing to keep color even.

      Lower heat slightly and add the heavy cream& nutmeg.
    7. 7
      Stir, scraping bottom of the pan.
    8. 8
      Simmer for 3 minutes, stirring OFTEN.
    9. 9
      Once the cream has been incorporated thoroughly, add the cheese a little bit at a time.
    10. 10
      Before adding more cheese, make sure the last bit has melted into the cream mixture.
    11. 11
      Add the shrimp& lobster.
    12. 12
      This should cook fairly quickly.
    13. 13
      Salt& pepper to taste& toss w/cooked pasta& chopped basil.
    14. 14
      Excellent in the summer served with May Wine or any slightly sweet white wine.

      This was positively FABULOUS. (Not the guy, the recipe..haha) I had to use my jarred nutmeg and I used freshly grated pecorino (try that instead! You'll love it!) but everything else I followed to the letter. I can tell you are a basil junkie like I am...loved all the basil. This is a great recipe with perfect ingredients. I look foward to your other recipes, I can see you are a fantastic chef.

      The only changed I made was adding mushrooms (because I put them in anything I can) We thought that the pasta had a nice flavor, but too much garlic. If I made it again I would use less basil and garlic.
