In a large skillet, add the remaining olive oil. Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the pan to sear 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove the shrimp to a separate bowl.

Stir in the white wine, heavy cream, whole milk, and freshly chopped parsley. Bring to a boil to thicken. Reduce heat to a simmer then add in the pasta and cooked shrimp.
