"I can get my son to do anything if I tell him I'm going to make this pasta," says Patti Pope. The recipe she shares makes a handsome, colorful whole-meal main course.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium heat, stir nuts often until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Pour out of pan.

Step 2

Pour 2 1/2 to 3 quarts water into pan, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a wide bowl, mix soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and chili oil.

Step 4

When water boils, stir in pasta. Cook, uncovered, 3 minutes. Stir in peas and shrimp. Cook until pasta is just tender to bite and shrimp are pink, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Drain well.

Step 5

Add pasta mixture, cilantro, and green onions to soy dressing and mix well. Sprinkle with nuts.
