Shrimp with Gorgonzola Sauce

Hmmmm....what to make tonight - I really had no plans for dinner - I came home looked around - saw that I had shrimp, gorgonzola cheese and heavy cream - a quick google later, I found a recipe for a sauce recipe that fit the bill.  I also thought I wouldn't end up blogging about it either, but here it is - the final product!

The sauce was made by reducing 3/4 cup of dry white wine in half over high heat.  Next added 3/4 cup of heavy cream and reduced mixture by about 1/3.  Lastly added 2 oz. gorgonzola cheese, 2 tbl parmesan cheese, fresh pepper and about 1/4 tsp nutmeg (fresh if you have it).  Stir until cheeses melt.

I sauteed the shrimp in a small amount of olive oil with a bit of minced garlic.  When almost done, added cheese mixture and simmered about 2 minutes.  Toss with your favorite pasta.  I really liked that the sauce wasn't heavy tasting or a thick sauce.  John liked it and gave it 4 stars!

Secret ingredient tonight was a butter flavored olive oil.  Recently in Rochester (in the Kahler hotel) the Stillwater Olive Oil Co. opened.  I had seen the store when I was buying my MOB dress in Stillwater but hadn't had a chance to stop in.  So I was excited when I heard they were opening a store here!  They have many different kinds but this one was written up in our newspaper and I was really anxious to try it and I'm glad I did.  I will definitely be using this in future recipes!
