Servings 6 people


  • 1 package long noodles whichever you prefer
  • 1 large head broccoli chopped into 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


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

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
