In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; whisk in flour and tarragon and cook, whisking, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in wine until combined. Whisk in milk; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until thickened.
Remove from heat. Whisk in cream cheese, salt and pepper until melted. Cut shrimp into bite-size pieces; add to sauce.
Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 6 minutes. Add broccoli; cook for 2 minutes or until pasta is tender but firm. Drain and add sauce; toss to coat. Pour into 11- x 7-inch (2 L) baking dish, pressing pasta to submerge. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day or wrap in heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks; thaw in refrigerator for 48 hours. Cover and bake in 400°F/200°C oven for 30 minutes before uncovering and continuing with recipe.)
Topping: In small bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, lemon rind and garlic; drizzle with butter and stir to combine. Sprinkle over pasta mixture. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is golden.
