In tonight’s flavorful dish, classic shrimp bucatini gets a twist from sliced green cabbage, which blends into the thick noodles and adds a hint of contrasting texture. A simple tomato sauce brightened with lemon juice and crushed red pepper brings it all together.

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Toast the breadcrumbs:
3 Toast the breadcrumbs:

While the pasta cooks, in a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the breadcrumbs and toast, stirring frequently, 1 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

Season the shrimp & cook the cabbage:
4 Season the shrimp & cook the cabbage:

While the pasta continues to cook, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant.

Add the shrimp:
5 Add the shrimp:

To the pan, add the tomato paste, the juice all 4 lemon wedges, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until dark red and fragrant. Add the seasoned shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Finish the pasta & serve your dish:
6 Finish the pasta & serve your dish:

Add the cooked pasta and half the reserved pasta cooking water to the pan of cooked shrimp and cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pasta is thoroughly coated. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish the finished pasta with the toasted breadcrumbs. Enjoy
