Expert Tips

  • Finish off each serving with a generous handful of chopped fresh herbs.
  • Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top of pasta before serving.
  • Medium shrimp are a good size to team up with cherry tomatoes and other veggies in this dish.
  • Whole-grain pastas do take a little longer to cook so be sure to follow package directions for doneness.
