Penne Pasta with Baked Lemon Shrimp


I spent the day floating at the pool and needed a quick hearty meal for everyone cause they were all starving! :-)

This was what I had in the house and it pulled together quite nice!

Ingredients

  • 1 box of mini penne pasta (use whatever you have)
  • 2 lbs frozen shrimp (soak in water to defrost and then peel)
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. of white wine or chicken stock
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup panko break crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. chopped parsley (I used scallions cause that's what I had!)
  • parmesan cheese
  • 3 lemons

Directions

  1. Peel your shrimp while a pot of water comes to a boil for the water. Heat your oven to 425. 
  2. In a baking dish or cookie sheet, combine the shrimp, garlic, wine or stock, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper. 
  3. In a small bowl, microwave 1/2 the stick of butter and then combine that with the breadcrumbs and parsley if you have it. 
  4. Sprinkle that over the shrimp, slice up 3 lemons over top and bake for 18 minutes. 
  5. Drop your pasta in the boiling water (mine only took 7 minutes so I waited until my timer reached 8 for the shrimp and then dropped it)
  6. Drain the pasta and put back in the pot with the other 1/2 stick of butter and throw a little parmesan cheese in it and mix well. 
  7. Place the pasta in a serving dish. 
  8. Take the shrimp out and place over top of the pasta. 
  9. Then I sprinkle some chopped scallions on top. Cause that's what I had!
It was quick and easy and everyone loved it! 

Enjoy!
