I’ve incorporated a technique below that is great for all pasta dishes -- finishing off the cooking of the pasta with some of the sauce and some pasta-cooking water. The starch in the cooking water helps to bind the sauce to the pasta, giving you a much more cohesive dish than you’d have if you simply spread the sauce on top or mixed it in with the fully-cooked pasta.
Note: To reheat the sauce the next day without getting rubbery shrimp, take the time to pick all the shrimp out of the sauce first. Then, reheat the sauce on the stovetop until it’s bubbling away, turn off the heat, and stir in the shrimp. They’ll heat up in the hot sauce without becoming overcooked.

Rice bowls are starting to be a big thing these days, and there's a good reason.
