Farfalle with Shrimp, Snow Peas, and Ginger-Sesame Dressing

James Baigrie

This is a light and refreshing spring entrée open to endless variations. Both seafood and vegetables can be substituted with your personal favorites. For a shortcut, choose prepared vegetables from your supermarket salad bar, and use already cooked shrimp--add to farfalle just before tossing to combine. Dinner will be on the table in the time it takes to cook the pasta.
