Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
Drain the noodles, but don't rinse them.
Season the shrimp with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil.
Once the oil has heated, place the shrimp into the pan in one layer. Cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side. The shrimp should look pink and white with no translucency.
Place the shrimp in a separate bowl and set aside.
Using the same pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and the chopped onion. Sauté until the onions look golden brown, about 6 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook while stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in the white wine and reduce until about 1/4 of the mixture remains, scraping the brown bits off of the bottom of the pan.
Stir the cream into the pan and allow it to simmer for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle the parmesan on top of the cream.
Stir the mixture until creamy and smooth, then remove from the heat.
Add in paprika, salt, and pepper to taste.
Stir in the cooked shrimp and drained pasta.
Serve with parsley, basil, and parmesan for garnish!
