Shrimp and Basil Pasta

Michael gave this a NINE on our dinner goodness scale, a departure from his almost universal "eight and a half." Need I say more? He did say I could hold the shrimp and double the mushrooms... ah, my mushroom lover.

Boil as directed on package:
* 1 (8 ounce) package pasta (any kind)
* 3 cloves chopped garlic
* 1 c. chop mushrooms
* 1/2 small package of shrimp, frozen
* 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
* 1 t. dry basil
* 1/2 t. rosemary
* dash oregano
* 1/3 t. thyme
* 1/2 cup dry white wine (or replace with 1/3 c. water and 1 capful lemon juice)
* 1/4 cup chopped parsley
Simmer until liquid reduced by half. Serve over pasta, topped with:
* 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
* 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Eat. Wish there was more.
