2 Tbs. unsalted butter

1 clove garlic, minced

1-1/2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Sautee pecans and garlic in butter and olive oil over medium heat until golden brown. Add the heavy cream and let the pecans and garlic simmer together for about 5-7 minutes or until thick. Reduce heat to low and add parmesan cheese an basil. Stir until the cheese is completely melted and the basil has wilted.

* Serve over pasta of choice. You can add meats, such as grilled chicken or shrimp to this for added heartiness.
