For reasons that I'd rather not get into... I REALLY needed some carbs this week.  What can I say, I am an emotional eater.

I love making this recipe.  It's light, full of flavor plus good-for-you broccoli and shrimp!  Kaboomski.


1/3 cup olive oil

4 teaspoons olive oil

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

2 pounds of jumbo, cooked and peeled shrimp

2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (or less depending how much heat you like)

8 oz penne noodles (I have also used fettucine before too)

White wine, to taste

Shredded parmesan cheese for topping


Mix together olive oil, garlic, lemon juice in a large bowl.  Add shrimp and toss.  Put bowl in fridge for 15 minutes to marinate.

Cook pasta per instructions

Saute shrimp and marinade in large saute pan over medium-high heat, adding broccoli and red pepper flakes.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring.  Pour a swirl of white wine and cook for an addition 5 minutes.

I like to pour the whole saute pan of shrimp yumminess in with the pasta to coat it, toss and enjoy!! :)
