  • I would drop the pre-cooked shrimp into the sauce right before you're finished with the sauce - shrimp doesn't take much to get it done and overcooking it is not a good thing. Cooking even raw shrimp with the noodles would over-cook it.

  • No they will over cook and get rubbery and chewy!!!

  • That will make the shrimp good.

  • It's the kind in the bag I bought from the grocery store, tails off and ready to eat, I just cook them in the pasta sauce then? Never made this before with shrimp
