How to cook Conchiglie Pasta with Shrimp
- 1/2 pound raw small shrimp, cleaned
- 6 ounces dried conchiglie pasta
- 2 ounces mini portobello mushrooms, sliced roughly
- 2 ounces vine cherry tomatoes
- 1- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
- 2 ounces creme fraiche
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- Pinch of sea salt
- Pinch of cracked black pepper
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil (I used rapeseed oil)
- Cook the conchiglie pasta according the instructions on the back of the pack. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and rinse it with cold water.
- Place a frying pan over a high heat and pour in the cooking oil. Once the oil has heated up, add the tomatoes, cover the pan and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add in the mushrooms, garlic, creme fraiche and parsley to the frying pan with the tomatoes.
- Turn down the heat and stir the pan frequently for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add in the shrimp and the drained pasta along with the salt and pepper.
- Mix everything together well and cover the pan again. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, until the shrimp have turned pink through. (Try not to overcook them though - you'll know if you've done this because they'll have curled up tightly.)
- Remove the pan from the heat and mix everything together again before serving.
- Garnish with some chopped fresh parsley and serve the pasta with shrimp hot.

The Conchiglie Pasta with Shrimp recipe easy to cook and so good!
Conchiglie has to be one of my favorite forms of pasta. You can pick it up at most supermarkets and it comes in lots of different sizes – the bigger the better for me. If you come across the really large conchiglie shells (conchiglioni) then you can even fill them and serve them like an open tortellini.
Either way, they’re delicious and have a great texture to them.
