Black Pepper Shrimp Pasta

*We had some shrimp that needed to be used the other day and my husband always makes up the best shrimp dishes.  So I put him to work creating this masterpiece!

1 1/2 cups water
4 tablespoons corn starch
1 ½ lbs cooked shrimp
¼ cup lemon or lime juice
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1 tablespoon dried basil
¼ cup freshly grated parmesan

3/4-1 pound noodles, cooked and drained

In a large skillet combine water and cornstarch. With constant stirring, heat mixture on Medium High until bubbly. Reduce heat to medium low and add remaining ingredients stirring thoroughly until the parmesan is melted. Serve over noodles of your choice.

Yield: 5 servings
