Step 1

Start your pasta boiling and cook until al dente. Save 2 cups of your pasta water.

In a medium sauce pan, pour in the Chardonnay and heat to boiling. Reduce the heat and add the bay shrimp, sauteing until warmed throughout. Set aside but keep it warm.

In a large saute pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until you can smell the garlic. Pour in the heavy cream and stir together over medium heat until mixture reduces a little, stirring frequently. Add the cheese and whisk until smooth, about 3-4 minutes. Add the freshly grated nutmeg and the freshly ground pepper, stirring until well mixed.

Add the shrimp mixture to the Alfredo pan and stir until well incorporated. Drain the cooked alfredo and pour into the Alfredo sauce, stiring until well blended. If mixture is too thick, add some pasta water, a little at a time until you reach your desired consistancy. Pour into serving bowl(s) and top with fresh chopped parsley and more shaved Parmegiano Reggiano if desired.
