Place a large pot with water over high heat and bring up to a boil. Once boiling, add some salt and the pasta, and cook to al dente according to package directions. Drain thoroughly.
While the water is coming up to a boil, start the shrimp and veggies: Season the shrimp with a little salt and some pepper. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once oil ripples, add the shrimp in an even layer. Cook about 2 minutes on each side then remove from the skillet and reserve on a plate.
