Expert Tips

Here's a recipe where "dovetailing," that is, preparing several parts of the recipe at the same time, will save you loads of time. While the water for the pasta comes to a boil, start chopping the veggies. Then, while the pasta cooks, start the shrimp and heat the marinara sauce. Dinner will be ready 1-2-3!
