Taken from Everyday Food. http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/fusilli-with-shrimp-and-peas?autonomy_kw=pasta shrimp peas lemon I did modify the pasta - I used whole wheat and reduced the amount from 1 pound to 12 ounces. This fresh-tasting dish can also be chilled and served for lunch. The recipe can be made with many different pastas, including penne or shells. Any leafy green, such as spinach or arugula, can be substituted for the watercress. Note: When slicing scallions, remember to keep the green and white parts separate: The white pieces get sauteed with the garlic; the green are sprinkled in just before serving.
