Add half and half, basil, and crushed red pepper to the skillet with shrimp.
Bring to boil and reduce to a simmer.
Whisk the Parmesan cheese into the hot cream and stir to melt cheese, on lowest heat setting, until cheese is melted.
Remove the sauce from heat.
Add more salt, basil and more crushed red pepper if desired, to taste.
Cook pasta according to package instructions.
Drain (reserving some pasta water).
Add cooked pasta to the creamy mixture.
