    1       T            Olive oil
    1       lb           Medium shrimp -- shelled
    1 1/2   c            Champagne

   Saute mushrooms in medium saucepan in hot olive oil over medium-high heat.
   Cook just long enough to release mushroom juices and let them evaporate.
   Remove mushrooms and set aside.  In same saucepan, combine shrimp,
   Champagne and salt.  Over high heat, heat to simmer.  When liquid JUST
   boils, shrimp are done.  Remove shrimp from cooking liquid with a slotted
   spoon immediately.  Set shrimp aside.  Add chopped shallots and tomatoes
   to cooking liquid.  Boil over high heat until liquid is reduced to about
   1/2 cup, approximately 8 minutes.  When liquid is reduced, add 3/4 cup
   heavy cream and boil 1 to 2 minutes, til slightly thickened and reduced.
   Add shrimp and mushrooms to sauce; heat through.  Taste and add more salt
   and pepper if needed.  Meanwhile cook pasta according to directions on
   package.  Drain thoroughly and return to cooking pot.  Toss with remaining
   1/4 cup cream and parsley.  To serve, divide pasta among four plates.
   Spoon shrimp and sauce over pasta.  Makes 4 servings.
