Mise en place
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Zest and juice the lemon. Remove the stem ends of the string beans. Halve the tomatoes. In a small bowl, make the lemony mascarpone by combining the mascarpone, ½ the lemon juice, ½ the lemon zest, a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P.

Sauté the vegetables
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the string beans and tomatoes, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to soften. Add the peas and remaining lemon zest. Sauté, 1 to 2 min., until the peas have softened; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Boil the pasta
Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 3 to 4 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Reserve the pot.

Cook the shrimp
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with the remaining spices and S&P. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Cook the shrimp*, 1 to 2 min. per side, until opaque and cooked through.

Combine the pasta
In the reserved pot, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Add the pasta, vegetables, pesto, demi-glace, remaining lemon juice, ½ the reserved cooking water and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until the pasta is coated. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
