Pasta with (Heavy) Garlic-Pepper Cream Sauce

This was a delicious, yet very heavy pasta dish - Pasta with chicken and garlic-pepper cream sauce. I won't bore you with the nightmares I had sleeping after such a meal, but will share the recipe with you. 

Step 1: Cut three carrots into matchsticks and simmer, for 5 minutes, in 1/2 cup chicken broth with 3 cloves garlic.

Step 2: Remove the carrots and put aside. Grill some chicken.

Step 3: Transfer the broth and garlic to a food processor. Add one 8 ounces package of cream cheese (wondering why it is heavy?), 2 Tbs Parmesan cheese, 2 Tbs milk, 1/2 tsp of each pepper and salt. Process until smooth.

Step 4: Chop off 6 - 8 shallots.

Step 5: Cook the pasta, mix all together and serve.

If I was to do it again, I would double the amount of pepper and cut the amount of cheese in half. But then again, I may be cutting the deliciousness factor exponentially. Well at least it had lots of carrots. Enjoy.
