Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat water and cook pasta al dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet and add the garlic. Saute for less than a minute. Add the cream and white wine and heat just to boiling, stirring constantly.
  3. Lower heat, then add shrimp, basil, parsley and thyme. Cook until shrimp is just heated through – do not overcook. Remove sauce from heat.
  4. Drain pasta and toss with sauce. Add cheese and toss again, then add salt and pepper to taste.

Note: For a twist on this recipe, try with Cajun seasoning, garlic salt, crushed red pepper or cayenne.
