    Shrimp and Pasta in Champagne Sauce (Seafood)

    8 ounce(s) Pasta
    1 tablespoon Olive oil
    1 cup Mushroom, fresh, sliced
    1 pound Shrimp, uncooked, peeled
    1 1/2 cup(s) Champagne
    2 tablespoon(s) Shallot(s), minced
    2 Tomato(s), plum, diced
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    1 cup Heavy cream
    Parmesan, fresh, grated

    Prepare pasta.
    Saute mushrooms in olive oil, remove and set aside.
    Combine shrimp, champagne and salt in the same pan and cook over high heat.
    When liquid starts to boil, remove shrimp.
    Add shallots and tomatoes to pan and cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup..about 8-10 minutes.
    Add 3/4 cup of the cream and boil until slightly thickened...about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and mushrooms and heat through.
    Take remaining 1/4 of cream and toss with pasta.
    Spoon shrimp and sauce over pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.

      I made this for DH's b'day supper last night, and he loved it! I did too!
      I will definitely make this again. DH said "it's a keeper!"

      I wanted to add a few of my changes before I forget:

      I added 1/2 tsp. of garlic pepper.
      I used more than 1c. of the cream.....almost the the whole pint.
      I used the Baby Bella sliced mushrooms.
      I used 24 oz. of shrimp instead of 16 oz.
      I added some fresh chopped parsley (a couple tablespoons)
      It also took longer than 8 minutes to reduce the Champagne down to 1/2 c.....more like 15-20 minutes.

      I must say that the leftovers were just as good as the first meal. Awesome recipe!
