So the other night Jason was laying on the couch making me slave in the kitchen...I know how rude! Just kidding, seriously I have been sick recently and he has waited on me hand and foot. What a good hubby! It was to the point that when it was time to go to the grocery store I had no idea what we even needed. So to thank him for all his slave labor, I got off the couch and cooked dinner. (I even let him pick)

We already had some whole grain tortellini so that pasta went into the pan of boiling water. Meanwhile I melted a whole stick of butter (and it has to be real butter...I didn't specify this to a friend one time and he tried to make his new girlfriend Alfredo with margarine..YUCK!) and some freshly minced (or out of the jar) garlic. I let that heat that up so that the butter gets some flava. Then added a small container of heavy whipping cream, and 1/2 a small container (it will be bigger than the whipping cream container) of 1/2 and 1/2. I heated the cream up, and slowly mixed in a bag of grated Parmesan cheese...stirring constantly. I seasoned mine with a little salt and pepper, and nature seasoning. When you get to this point it's decision time, if the consistency is thick enough for you than eat it, if not mix 1 TBS of cornstarch with a TBS of water and add it to the sauce.

Towards the end of the noodles cooking I added some chopped fresh broccoli to the boiling water and multi-tasked. I also seasoned the shrimp and cooked them in a skillet until they were pink. Drain the water, add some sauce and shrimp and enjoy....Seriously it was soooo good!
