12 ounces fettuccine noodles
12 ounces shrimp, peeled, de-veined, and tails removed
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. In a large pan preheat 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add shrimp, 1 teaspoon garlic, and italian seasoning and stir over medium heat until shrimp are cooked through (3-4 minutes). Transfer shrimp to a bowl.
In the pan where you cooked the shrimp, melt the butter over medium heat. Add remaining 1 teaspoon garlic and stir until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Add flour 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring continually until mixture comes together in a sort of clump. Slowly whisk in cream and milk until mixture is smooth.
Add salt and pepper, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese and stir until cheeses are melted. Stir in shrimp. Serve over prepared noodles. Top with fresh parsley and additional parmesan cheese if desired.
