A refreshing combination of yogurt, cucumber, and dill completes this shrimp-laced pasta salad. If the pasta absorbs too much moisture while standing, just add a little more yogurt to make it saucy again.
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound medium shrimp, shelled
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise (optional)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and ribs removed, minced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3 scallions including green tops, chopped
1/4 teaspoon paprika
3/4 pound rotelle
Rotelle and Shrimp with Yogurt Dill Dressing Recipe at
In a medium frying pan, melt the butter over moderate heat. Stir in the garlic and then the shrimp, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Cook, stirring, until the shrimp are just done, about 4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, the mayonnaise, if using, the jalapeño, cucumber, dill, scallions, paprika, and the remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the rotelle until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain the pasta, rinse with cold water, and drain thoroughly. Toss with the yogurt sauce and the shrimp and garlic.

RINSING PASTA: Never rinse pasta that you will be saucing and serving right away. Cooked pasta is covered with a thin layer of starch that helps the sauce cling to it. If you're making a salad, however, it's better to rinse this starch off to avoid gumminess when the pasta cools.
