Penne with Brie, Shrimp, and Walnuts

Someone gave me a wheel of brie. And I've been able to make a lot of yummy things from it. But our favorite was this pasta. It's a made up recipe.
1 pound penne pasta, cooked
1 pound shrimp-peeled, tails removed, deveined
3 cloves garlic
1 wedge of brie, rind trimmed off and cheese cubed into small pieces (you could also use any other soft cheeses)
1/4 c parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup half-and-half (or whole milk, cream, or whatever you have)
1/2 c finely chopped walnuts
1/4 c olive oil
Saute shrimp in oil until almost done, then add garlic and finish cooking one more minute. In a small saucepan, add half-and-half, and both cheeses and stir constantly over medium-low heat until smooth. Now toss all ingredients together. Garnish with parsley and walnuts.
