DIRECTIONS

  • Put your pot of water on to boil your favorite pasta.
  • Peel & devein shrimp while melting 1 tablespoon butter & 1 tablespoon olive oil over low heat in skillet large enough to hold the shrimp.
  • Press 2 cloves of garlic into butter/oil mixture & gently sauté, low enough heat not to brown garlic.Add cayenne & salt to skillet.
  • Add shrimp & raise heat enough to hear the shrimp sizzle. Sauté 5 minutes stirring often or until the shrimp begin to turn opaque and brighten - but not until they become white and firm yet.
  • Take off heat & mix in the parsley and pepper.
  • Melt the remaining butter in a 1 quart saucepan. Add the cream & evaporated milk. Reduce the mixture by 1/3 over medium heat, stirring constantly (I use a smaller sized whisk for this). It will boil & that is OK - just keep stirring!
  • Add the cream cheese in 3 or 4 chunks & stir until melted.
  • Add the nutmeg & the Parmigiano, stirring well.
  • Pour thickened sauce over shrimp in skillet & simmer a few minutes on low heat while you drain your pasta. Use some of the sauce to dress the pasta, then serve with additional sauce & plenty of shrimp.
