From the Test Kitchen

This bright summer pasta—which stars a hearty trio of shrimp, sautéed tomatoes, and zucchini—gets an irresistibly rich boost of flavor from mascarpone and parmesan cheese, plus just a bit of Calabrian chile paste for a kick of heat.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the pasta
2 Cook the pasta

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and halved tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Add the shrimp
4 Add the shrimp

Add the seasoned shrimp to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Turn off the heat.

5 Finish the pasta & serve your dish

To the pot of cooked pasta, add the cooked vegetables and shrimp, butter, mascarpone, half the reserved pasta cooking water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through and the pasta is coated (if necessary, gradually add the remaining cooking water to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated). Turn off the heat; taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pasta garnished with the parmesan. Enjoy!
