Tips: 

Cook the pasta al dente. Al dente in Italy is completely different from al dente in America. You want to undercook the pasta slightly, so the pasta has a firm bite. Al dente is indeed better in texture and overall mouthfeel of the pasta.

Use big shrimp or jumbo prawn if you can. Cut the shrimp into big chunky pieces.
