Zoopa Pasta

This is a very simple dish that I had once at a restaurant in the Seattle area that I liked, so I went home made it for myself.  Not much to it, but for a quick meal, it has a lot of flavor.

1/4 cup

Garlic 3-4 cloves, smashed & minced
Shrimp (pre-cooked) 1/8 to 1/4  Lb
Heavy cream 1/4 pint
