1 stick butter

3 teaspoons garlic, minced

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 cups Parmesan cheese, shredded

1 cup Asiago cheese or Italian cheese blend, shredded

Seasoning to taste (I use onion powder, oregano and Italian seasoning)

1 pound or more shrimp, seasoned as preferred and grilled (tails and shells removed)

Cooked pasta for serving


In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic and heavy whipping cream. When hot, stir in Parmesan cheese and Asiago cheese/Italian cheese blend. Season to taste. Add grilled shrimp. Serve with pasta.

Note: This recipe can also be prepared with grilled chicken instead of shrimp. This recipe is modified from the “Cooking with South Central” cookbook.
