Recipe: Shrimp Boil Pasta
Two summertime staples — pasta salads and shrimp boils — combine in this fun family-style meal that would be ideal to make for an outdoor dinner on the water, whether you’re a lake, beach or river family. The tangy sauce, flavored with scallions, Old Bay seasoning (of course!), lemon, and thyme, is truly delicious. The sauce is also light, so this pasta dish isn’t too heavy for a hot summer night. This pasta comes with all the flavor and goodness of a classic shrimp boil, and it’s ready in less than 40 minutes, so you can even make this on a busy weeknight. Make a trip to the farmer’s market and stock up on fresh summer corn for the best flavor. If you’re not accustomed to cooking shrimp, here’s a tip from the test kitchen: Remember when cooking with shrimp to stir it in at the end. It only takes 2 to 4 minutes to cook.
