    In the pot in which pasta was cooked, add coconut milk, ginger, and red curry paste. Whisk to combine and bring to a simmer. Remove shiitake mushrooms from liquid and slice into thin strips (julienne). Add to pot with sauce, along with 2 Tbsp. of rehydrating liquid and juice from half of lime. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tsp. of cold water and add to sauce. When sauce has thickened, add pasta back to pot and stir to combine. Season to taste salt and pepper.
