2 ounces fresh basil leaves
10 ounces butter -- softened
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt

Remove any large stems from basil and wash leaves. Shake off excess water
and dry with paper towel. Place in food processor; with blade attachment

get a uniformly chopped basil. Remove from processor and reserve.

Place butter in small mixer bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip butter
until pliable. Add garlic, salt, pepper, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, and
basil; mix until well incorporated. Basil butter can be used immediately
or stored covered in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

Melt basil butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp and sauté
just until done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over hot cooked pasta. Pass
freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
