Shrimp Scampi Fettuccini

This one looks like a winner but I'm gonna save a little time and money and use the precooked salad shrimp just toss them in after sauteing the other ingredients. Mm-mm Looks delish!

1 1/2 lbs. uncooked fresh shrimp (prawns) in shells
2 Tbs. vegetable or olive oil
2 Tbs. green onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbs. dried basil leaves
1 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbs. butter
8 oz. fettuccine
, cooked
Grated Parmesan cheese

Peel shrimp and make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each - rinse under running water to remove vein. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp and remaining ingredients (except cheese and pasta) in oil, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until shrimp are pink and firm. Add butter and toss with shrimp until fully melted. Remove from heat.

Toss fettuccine with shrimp mixture in skillet. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
