In a saucepan combine butter with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and saute’ over medium heat for a few minutes, then add minced garlic and continue to saute’ for another 2 minutes on low or until the moisture in the pan is absorbed. Add  1/2 cup of the wine you reserved when draining the pasta to the saute’ mushrooms.  Stir over low heat for 2 minutes then add the thickening of cornstarch/water. Stir over medium heat until mixture thickens slightly. Place pasta in serving dish and top with shaved parmesan.
