Pasta with Shrimp

173. For dinner tonight, Maggie wanted shrimp and pasta to celebrate her birthday.
I steamed fresh green beans to go along with the pasta and it put a smile on her face.

Fusilli and Shrimp in Garlic Cream Sauce

1 box fusilli pasta, boil and drain just prior to the sauce being finished.
3 Tblspoons olive oil
5 cloves garlic crushed or chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1 pound fresh shrimp, cleaned, deveined, leaving on tails
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

In a large skillet over high heat, saute garlic in oil. Add chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Place raw shrimp into broth and saute' the shrimp turning once, for approximately 4 minutes or until shrimp is a light pink color. Slowly add the cream and grated Romano cheese. Season for taste and pour over hot cooked pasta. Sprinkle fresh basil over the pasta, sprinkle with Romano and serve.

This meal was so delicious.
