This is one of those recipes that my family has had forever and loves. It is very simple and very good. Now- beware! You are basically going to be eating straight cream, cheese and butter over pasta, but that is why it is so good, right? We usually add shrimp but leaving it without is still good.
¼ C butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 C fresh mushrooms, sliced/optional
4 C heavy cream
½ C fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 lb pasta
Saute garlic and mushrooms in butter. Add cream and bring to rolling boil. Reduce heat and simmer sauce. Add cheese right before tossing with noodles and serving.
