Expert Tips

Using already cooked and peeled shrimp for this recipe is a big time-saver. Tossing cold shrimp with the hot pasta and vegetables should warm them sufficiently, but you can warm them up slightly first if you prefer. This dish is good served warm or at room temperature.

Substitute your favorite shape of short pasta for the bow-tie.
