Expert Tips

Cashews are the nut of the cashew apple. Their high fat content gives them their delicious buttery flavor. Because of that fat, cashews should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer so they don't become rancid.

Add 1 pound cooked peeled deveined medium shrimp with pasta in step 2. Continue as directed.
