I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Heavy cream, butter and cheese aren’t so bad, as long as you throw in some seafood for nutritional value. Excuses aside, Alfredo is a wonderful sauce that is really very easy to make and compliments any type of seafood, vegetable or meat.
Because it is so rich a little goes a very long way, so indulge.

Fettuccini Alfredo with Shrimp

1 cup heavy cream
3 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cup parmesan cheese, fine
3/4 to 1 pound cooked fettuccini
Black pepper or Red pepper flakes to taste
Dash of nutmeg
1 pound shrimp

Cook fettuccini, keep warm. Add all other ingredients to large fry pan. Keep stirring until thickened. Boil shrimp in water for about 5 minutes. Add fettuccini and shrimp to sauce.
