In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat on Wolf range, place butter and olive oil and heat until butter is melted. Add garlic and turn heat down to low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the garlic is cooked through, and tender, but not brown. Add cream, salt and pepper. Turn down to medium heat and gently simmer mixture until cream is reduced by one-third. Whisk in cheese and season, if desired. Serve over one pound cooked pasta, potatoes or your favorite food.
