Valentine's Day Dinner



we celebrated valentine's day with a special family dinner this year with the cranes. i wanted to make something special but not too complicated so i made shrimp alfredo with linguini. it was delicious! and for dessert i served tiramisu. here's the recipe...

...recipe my own creation
1 pound shrimp, peeled and devained
1/2 stick butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 stick butter
3 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 pound parmesan cheese, grated
1-2 teaspoons salt

1 pound linguini, cooked

for the shrimp...
In a small saute pan melt the butter and saute the garlic for a few minutes. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and no longer transparent. Season with salt.

for the alfredo sauce...
In a large saute pan melt the butter and saute the garlic for a few minutes. Pour in the cream. Gradually add the parmesan cheese, stirring constantly. Add the salt to taste.

To serve pile the linguini in the middle of the plate and spoon the alfredo sauce over the top. Place about 5-6 shrimp on the top and sprinkle with chopped chives if desired. Serve warm.
