Blanch the vegetables:
Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice cubes. This water is to stop the vegetables from cooking once they are blanched.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add kosher salt to your liking.
Add the broccoli, asparagus, and green beans to the pot. Once the water returns to a boil, set the timer for two minutes. Remove the vegetables to the cold water. Drain and reserve.
For the Primavera:
Heat a large (12") non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the mushrooms in a single layer. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Saute, stirring and flipping the mushrooms until the mushrooms are browned on both sides. Remove to a plate and reserve.
Add a bit more olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the shrimp in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper. Add the slice cherry tomatoes, trying to get them cut side down. Saute for a minute or so. Flip the shrimp and continue to saute until the shrimp are cooked and the tomatoes are slightly softened. Remove to the plate with the mushrooms and reserve.
In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, half & half, and the corn starch. Reserve.
Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet. Once heated, add the carrot noodles, and saute for 1 minute. Raise the heat a bit, and add the white wine. Saute for 2 more minutes, lower heat to medium, and add the zucchini noodles. Toss the noodles together and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the noodles are done to your liking.
Add the reserved vegetables and shrimp. Toss together. Add the broth mixture, and stir until thickened. There won't be a lot of sauce. It just coats the noodles, shrimp, and vegetables. Stir in the parmesan.
Season to taste with additional salt and pepper; and serve - allotting 6 shrimp per serving.
