  5. Pour the heavy cream into your skillet and stir until it reaches a gentle simmer. Allow cooking for 2-3 minutes, occasionally stirring as the cream thickens.
  6. Incorporate the grated Parmesan into the skillet and stir until it is thoroughly melted and blended with the cream.
  7. Gently mix the cooked pasta with the creamy sauce in the same skillet for even coating.
  8. Carefully add the cooked shrimp to the skillet, stirring delicately until fully incorporated.
  9. To finish the dish, season it with a pinch of salt and pepper for optimal flavor.
