delicious shrimp alfredo

Ingredients that you will need:

1 package pasta of your choice (I used fettuccine) 

1 lb peeled and de-veined shrimp
1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 stick of butter
2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons of flour
2 cups of 2% milk
2 tablespoons of cream cheese
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of white or black pepper

1.  Cook pasta according to package directions.
2.  In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and add 1 clove of chopped garlic (reserve the other clove for later).  Cook for 1 minute.
3.  Add flour and stir in the pan for a few minutes until it starts bubbling.
4.  Add milk and cream cheese and heat until bubbling, but do not boil.
5.  Add in Parmesan cheese and mix until the cheese melts and the sauce starts to thicken.  (If you see that the sauce is taking a long time to thicken, sprinkle in about another tablespoon of flour and whisk into the sauce).
6.  Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.

1.  While the sauce is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet at medium to high heat.  Add leftover garlic and cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
2.  Add shrimp and cook until garlic is slightly caramelized and shrimp is cooked all the way through and is golden in color.

Mix the hot sauce into the noodles, and place shrimp on top.
