  1. Melt butter in small skillet or pan over low heat.
  2. Cut and crush garlic cloves and add to butter. Saute until garlic is tender.
  3. Strain butter to remove garlic.
  4. While garlic butter cools, mix together whipping cream and sour cream slowly (so that it won't curdle).
  5. Add butter to cream mixture, while mixing with wire whisk.
  6. Add to pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.

If you need to reheat sauce before adding to pasta, do so carefully in a double boiler as it curdles easily.
