Monday’s Bread Bowl: Spicy Shrimp Penne

A seafood pasta to toss about

The basic ingredients are what make this a satisfying menu item. We combined broccoli rapini, al dente penne, shrimp, and parmesan cheese for a flavorful bite in every forkful of this pasta dish. Here is our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 large frying pan or wok
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb penne, cooked until al dente and drained
2 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
2 bunches broccoli rapini, blanched and cut into bite-sized pieces
½ tablespoon hot chili paste or red pepper flakes
Pinch of Salt

Cooking and Directions:

Heat pan on medium-high heat. Add oil, garlic, salt, and onion. Sauté ingredients until onion turns translucent. Pour in shrimp and cook for 8- 10 minutes or until pink. Be careful not to overcook. Remove shrimp from pan. Next, pour in cooked penne, chili paste (or red pepper flakes), and blanched broccoli rapini into hot pan. Toss well and let ingredients cook for another five minutes. Return shrimp to pan and toss well, again. Finally, sprinkle with parmesan and mix well. Serve immediately.
