I started with butter, olive oil, garlic (smashed and chopped), and shallots. You get a nice carmelization on those and I added in the wine. Typically folks use pinot, right? Well, all I had was chardonnay and I'm sticking with it from now on. The key is to let the wine reduce. If you don't, then don't bother w/fixing this meal. I seasoned this mixture with nothing more than salt (kosher of course) and fresh pepper. I added in the shrimp and some frozen peas. I don't know what it is with me and peas - but I love them...to death. Those little poppers are so tasty! I always have a bag in my freezer. Get the frozen kind - canned veggies are from the Devil. Anyway, add cream, fresh parm, chopped parsley, and linguine and you've got a meal. I topped mine w/more cheese and fresh cracked pepper.
This took all of 15 minutes from start to finish. Give it a try - and remember, let the Chardonnay reduce...don't sleep on that part!
