Alicia's Homeade "SPICY" Pasta

I had a bunch of leftover ingredients in the fridge and cabinets and wanted to come up with a pasta recipe from scratch... it actually turned out really good, a bit spicy, but you can curb that when you make it!

Alicia's Spicy Pasta

What you need:
1/2 lb pasta (really any kind.. I used Fettuccine)
-1 cup (or so) mushrooms (sliced)

- 1 garlic clove
- heavy whipping cream (about 1/4 c. or so)
- 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
- 1 bunch green onion (chopped)
- 1 Tb. sugar

What to do:
-Cook pasta in boiling water until el dente (add salt to boiling water while cooking, just a sprinkle)
- while pasta cooks make sauce: 
1. Heat 1 Tb. olive oil in skillet, add green onion, garlic, parsley, mushrooms... stir until heated through
2. Add diced tomatoes, shrimp and sugar to skillet, cook about 5 min
