  1. Make the sauce: In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes. Add Parmesan and garlic, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat; let thicken. Add parsley and red pepper, if desired.
  2. For the shrimp: In the work bowl of a food processor, add basil, pine nuts and garlic; pulse to combine. With motor running, add 2 tablespoons oil in a steady stream and process until a smooth paste forms. Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan and salt and process 30 seconds more.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook until pink and firm; stir in red pepper, basil mixture and Quick Alfredo Sauce. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened. Top with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.
