4. Reduce heat under skillet to medium; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil into skillet. Add scallions and snow peas; saute 1 minute. Add to shrimp.

5. Whisk together reserved soy mixture, 1/2 cup of reserved corn liquid and the cornstarch in small bowl until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Pour into skillet. Bring to boiling; cook 1 minute. Stir in shrimp mixture with baby corn; gently heat through.

6. Drain pasta; turn into large bowl. Add shrimp with vegetables, tossing until well combined. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
