  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy cream or Half and Half I used A2 cream
  • 1 cup milk I used raw A2 milk with most of the cream removed
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups pasta gluten free, cooked
  • 2 cups tiny shrimp frozen and thawed


  1. In a medium heavy bottomed saucepan, over mediu heat melt the butter.
  2. Add the cornstarch and stir to create a roux.
  3. Add the cream and milk, and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the cream cheese and stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  5. Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  6. Add the Parmesan cheese and shrimp and heat for about 5-6 minutes until the cheese is melted and the shrimp are heated through. (If you cook it too long, the shrimp will get rubbery.)
  7. Serve over your choice of pasta.
