“A friend of mine gave me this recipe, and it has become a family favorite. It is an elegant enough for company yet very simple to make, especially if you purchase shrimp that has already been peeled.” - by TKF123
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain.
- Meanwhile, heat oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Cook and stir mushrooms in oil until tender. Remove mushrooms from pan, and set aside.
- Combine shrimp, champagne, and salt in the frying pan, and cook over high heat. When liquid just begins to boil, remove shrimp from pan. Add shallots and tomatoes to champagne; boil until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 8 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup cream; boil until slightly thick, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add shrimp and mushrooms to sauce, and heat through. Adjust seasonings to taste.
- Toss hot, cooked pasta with remaining 1/4 cup cream and parsley. To serve, spoon shrimp with sauce over pasta, and top with Parmesan cheese.

"Incredible! I made this dish last night for my girlfriend who described it as orgasmic after only the first mouthful! I essentially followed the recipe, but altered it slightly as per one previous rev..." See moreiewer. I sauteed swiss brown mushrooms in butter and olive oil then flamed them with a dash of brandy. Also added a teaspoon of garlic to the shallots and champagne. I used drained plum tomatoes instead of fresh, and added all the cream to the tomato sauce. I used a good champagne and it was worth the expense. Overall, probably the best pasta I have ever eaten, and I have eaten in michelin starred restaurants in Italy. The flavours are subtle, and the recipe does NOT need the garlic unless you definitely must have it. Not sure what difference using fresh tomatoes would make, but the drained canned tomatoes did not detract from the dish in my opinion. I will definitely be adding this recipe to my list of keepers. Outstanding."
"This was an incredible recipe but I did make just a few changes. First, I added 1/2 of a medium onion instead of shallots and I added 3 cloves of garlic for extra flavor. I cooked the onions, garlic, ..." See moreand mushrooms together in the olive oil also with a few tablespoons of butter and then followed the directions for the rest of the recipe. I will surely be making this recipe again and again... it was excellent!"
"I made this for new year's eve and it was the BEST dish I have ever made!! Definitely restaurant quality!!

I used a really dry champagne (Freixenet Brut), which I think is important. I don't think the sauce would turn out very well if you used a sweet champagne. The flavor concentrates when you're cooking with alcohol, so you want to use a champagne you would drink from the glass. Since I used a dry champagne, the grape tomatoes gave it just the right amount of sweetness. I think next time I will add some lump crabmeat. YUM!! Can't wait to make this for company. We'll be making this for many years to come!"
