Shrimp in Creamy Garlic Sauce-Video

Good morning Foodies! It's Thursday, Tax day is over (woot!) and it is an absolutely beautiful day in Chicago! We have had some gross weather here for the last week or so. Lots of rain, chilly temperatures and that bone-chilling wind we are so well known for. But today, spring has seemingly sprung again :)
Last night I was over at a friend's place and we whipped up some shrimp in a creamy garlic sauce. The recipe was really easy, and the finished product was one of the best shrimp & pasta dishes I have had. Enjoy the video & happy eating!


Ingredients
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb large cooked, peeled & deveined shrimp
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 oz. fresh linguine, cooked and drained
Directions
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Pour in cream and wine, and bring to a simmer. Cook until cream begins to thicken (approximately 10 minutes). Stir in parsley, Parmesan, shrimp, and season with salt & pepper. Heat just until the shrimp are warmed through, 1 - 2 minutes. Pour sauce & shrimp over linguine in a large bowl and toss to coat.

Dinner will be a lot earlier than it was last night lol. Taping the process is pretty time consuming, but a lot of fun. That dish was delicious, but next time I think I will use 1/2 cup less heavy cream so it thickens a bit more.
