Add pasta; cook and stir 3 min. or until heated through.
Spoon pasta mixture onto platter; top with shrimp, parsley and Parmesan.
Understanding Shrimp Sizing
The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. When buying frozen shrimp, the count is generally listed on the package. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium, and 36 to 45 is small.
For a spicy kick, toss shrimp with 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper in addition to the dressing and garlic before baking as directed.
