Who you callin’ shrimp? There’s nothing small about the taste of this pasta dish, featuring your favourite pink crustaceans, pan-cooked to opaque and juicy-crisp. Size-wise they’re a great match for tubes of fresh rigatoni, boiled to al dente for residual chew. Tuck in to discover the sauce subtly laden with veggies: our broccoli ‘rice’ and sliced leeks melt into a butter and cream base. Follow up with a side salad dressed with white balsamic and tomato pesto for extra pizzazz.

Boil the pasta
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta; stir gently to separate. Boil, 5 to 8 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Set aside in a warm spot.
