Shrimp and Mushroom Pasta

Simplicity itself. Make a half-pound of fettuccini. Chop up about a pound of various mushrooms, cook in about a tablespoon of olive oil with herbs, garlic and onion. Don't season them till they've gained some color. Finished with a little of the pasta water (1/4 to 1/2 cup) salt, and lemon juice. Topped off with seared shrimp. (Salt and pepper some cleaned shrimp, set aside for 30 minutes or so, then put them on an extremely hot skillet for two minutes. Turn the shrimp, take the skillet off the heat and cover, set aside for two or three more minutes until the shrimp are done all the way through.)
