Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Coarsely chop roasted red pepper. Rinse shrimp, pat dry, and sprinkle with seasoning blend.

  • 2

    Cook the Pasta and Broccoli

    Add pasta to boiling water and cook 6 minutes. Add broccoli florets to water and cook until pasta is al dente and broccoli is crisp tender, 2 minutes. Carefully ladle out and reserve 1 cup cooking water for finishing sauce. Drain pasta and broccoli in colander, shaking to remove as much water as possible. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  • 3

    Make the Alfredo Sauce

    Return pot to medium-high heat, add cream, and bring to a boil. Add Parmesan cheese, remove from burner, and stir until smooth.

  • 4

    Finish the Pasta

    Add roasted red peppers, pasta, and broccoli to pot and stir until sauce coats pasta. Taste and adjust seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover and set aside. Sauce will thicken as it rests. Stir in reserved pasta water 2 Tbsp. at a time to loosen, if desired.

  • 5

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and shrimp to hot pan and cook until opaque, firm, and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes per side.

  • 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place pasta on plate and top with shrimp.
