Roasted Shrimp, Broccoli & Garlic Pasta | Quick & Easy Pasta Recipe | Spaghetti With Shrimp & Broccoli Recipe | Roasted Broccoli and Garlic Shrimp Pasta

My kids love noodles. They would eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I left them. They are probably just a few steps away from pasta rehab, if there is such a thing.

And I gotta tell you, I’m not really a big fan of pasta. Spaghetti with red sauce has always grossed me out, even as a kid, reminding me of something I won’t mention here, for fear of ruining it for the rest of you. I use red sauce in all sorts of other recipes, and we eat a lot of pasta, but I never, ever, ever buy spaghetti noodles. Angel hair, yes. Penne, BowTie, Ziti, Spiral…all fine and dandy. But never spaghetti.

I realize have issues. At this point in my life, I’m just going to let it go.

Out of necessity, I’ve had to find a few “happy medium” pasta recipes that can satisfy all of us. This one is probably my favorite.

It is based on a Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) recipe I found in House Beautiful magazine a few years ago. It combines 3 of my favorite things–shrimp, roasted broccoli, and garlic–into a pile of yummy deliciousness that is easy (and fast)enough to make every day yet still impressive enough to serve to guests, if need be. In short, pretty much the perfect recipe!

Here is what you need:

1 package long noodles (whichever you prefer)
1 large head broccoli, chopped into large bite-size pieces
1 pound shrimp (I use the pre-cooked kind from Sam’s club)
6-10 garlic cloves (depending on how much you like garlic), sliced
red pepper flakes to taste, if desired
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth or salted water
1 tablespoon parsley
1 cup Parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
olive oil
 

Toss the shrimp with the broccoli in a bowl.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the chopped broccoli & shrimp in a large bowl. Pour in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well so that all the shrimp and broccoli is well coated.

Spread the shrimp and broccoli on a tin foil-lined baking sheet.

Step 2: Spread out shrimp & broccoli on foil-covered baking sheet. Roast for 8-10 minutes.

Boil spaghetti noodles or your pasta of choice for this easy broccoli dish.

Step 3: While broccoli is roasting, begin boiling water in large pot. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, (reserving 1 1/2 cups of the water, if using in place of broth) & set aside.

Saute garlic in a wok with plenty of olive oil.

Step 4: Heat 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil in large wok or pot. Saute the garlic for a few minutes, stirring often, until gold brown. Add red pepper flakes, if desired. Add the water or broth to the garlic & bring to a boil. Lower heat, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, & simmer for a few minutes until water is slightly reduced.

Toss the pasta with roasted shrimp, broccoli and garlic for this easy and yummy pasta dish.

Step 5: Add the pasta to the garlic and toss well so noodles are evenly coated and well heated. Remove from heat; add the roasted shrimp and broccoli, as well as the parsley and Parmesan cheese. Toss well and serve.
