I made this delicious Alfredo sauce to go with some of my favorite seafood. I had planned an entirely different meal but when I started dinner this just made itself! We had some left over pasta, some left over grated cheeses, onions already chopped, garlic already diced and some cream that needed to be used before it went bad. I just added the rest and dinner was on the table in no time! I hope you enjoy!

1/3 lb medium shrimp (peeled and detailed)
1/3 lb calamari rings
1/3 lb bay scallops
1 green onion (chopped)
2 tbsp sweet white onion (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1/4 cup fresh Italian Parsley (chopped)
1/2 tsp fresh sage (chopped)
1 tsp fresh basil (chopped)
1/2 cup Parmesan Reggiano (freshly grated)
2 tbsp Romano (freshly grated)
1/3 cup Jalapeno Jack (shredded)
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup unsalted sweet European butter
1/2 tsp essence
fresh crack pepper medley (to taste)
4 servings of pasta (your choice but I suggest wheat spaghetti or fettucini)

In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add sweet onion and garlic cooking for 5 minutes. Slowly whisk in heavy cream and continuously stir for 3-5 minutes or until heated through. Now add the cheeses and seasonings stirring until cheeses are melted (5-7 minutes.) Once cheeses are melted add shrimp, scallops and bay scallops cooking uncovered until done (5-7 minutes.)

Cook your pasta until Al dente while making Alfredo Sauce.

Serve warm over pasta with garlic bread and a light glass of wine. Enjoy!
