1. Cook pasta according to the package directions, then drain, rinse under cool water and set aside.
2. In a large skillet, heat ¼ cup of the olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring frequently until the shrimp turn pink and is completely cooked through, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove shrimp and set aside. Be careful not to allow the garlic to burn.
3. Using the same skillet, over a medium high heat, add the remaining olive oil, mushrooms, salt and pepper to taste. Stir occasionally. Once the mushrooms begin to brown, remove them and set aside.
4. Next add the butter and allow it to partially melt, about 1 minute over medium heat.
5. Stir in the heavy whipping cream and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 7 to 8 minutes until the sauce thickens. Stir occasionally.
6. Add the lemon juice, zest, Parmesan, crushed red pepper, cooked shrimp, mushrooms, pasta, and fresh herbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
7. Serve immediately with a few drops of Black Truffle oil. Garnish with Shaved Parmesan, Whole Basil Leaves and Enjoy
