Autumn is the time of the year I start craving warm and comforting pasta. You might think you can use any pasta shape to make a dish, but the right shape can really elevate the flavour. This savoury shrimp pasta was ho-hum when my food testers and I made it with penne, but when we switched to orecchiette, a pasta from Puglia, Italy, it was a completely different dish.
