Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water before draining. Heat olive oil a large pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic & shrimp, cooking for a minute. Sprinkle with basil, red pepper flakes, paprika, & salt. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is pink on both sides. Remove the shrimp from skillet & set aside. Add sliced mushrooms to pan, adding more olive oil if necessary. Cook until soft. Salt midway through cooking. Add the cooked shrimp. Stir in half & half. Add cheeses. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cook, stirring constantly, until all cheese melts. If the cream sauce is too thick & you want it creamier, add some pasta water 2 TB at a time until you reach desired consistency. Stir well & adjust seasonings, if needed. Serve over pasta.
