1First, prepare a pot with boiling water in it. Also, make sure you add a tablespoon of salt to it. Then, put the pasta into the pot. Cook, it based on the instructions written in the package until completely cooked. Then, drain the pasta and set aside for a while.

Stir and saute for several minutes until you smell fragrant. Also, add again with white wine and boil until the liquid is thickened.
5After that, add the cream and simmer the mixture until 2 minutes. Drizzle and stir with the parmesan cheese until the texture is creamy and smooth. Still, let it simmer without turning off the heat. Here, you also may add the salt, paprika and pepper to the seasoning.
Now, you can add the pasta and shrimp to the sauce mixture. Coat the pasta well with the sauce and serve while it is warm. You may also use a pasta bowl as the platter and add chopped parsley, parmesan cheese along with the cracked black pepper on top of the dish as the garnish.
