The Dish
This simple, summery pasta dish is a two-pan wonder. Shrimp, onion, garlic, bell peppers, broccoli, and  mushrooms are tossed in a simple seasoning of garlic and extra virgin olive oil. The shrimp and veggies are baked together on a single baking sheet before being tossed together with whole wheat penne pasta. A little sprinkle of basil and provolone cheese finish this delicious pasta dish. A great meal for a packable lunch or casual weeknight dinner. 

Hacking this Recipe: Prep the vegetables in this recipe ahead of time and store, refrigerated, until ready to cook. The pasta can also be cooked ahead of time, and chilled, for a cold entree or side salad. 

8 oz (227 g) whole wheat penne pasta 
4 tablespoons (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil 
4 each (15 g) garlic cloves, peeled and minced 
1 cup (100 g) red onion, peeled and sliced 
1 cup (100 g) red bell peppers, seeded and sliced 
1 cup (100 g) green bell peppers, seeded and sliced 
2 cups (160 g) broccoli florets 
2 cups (140 g) mushrooms, quartered 
1lb (454 g) raw shrimp, peeled 
1 teaspoon (4 g) salt 
pinch of black pepper 
1 cup (130 g) cherry tomatoes, halved or diced 
2 tablespoons (1 g) fresh basil, chopped 
1/4 cup (30 g) provolone cheese, crumbled or diced 


  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. 
  • Fill a large pot halfway full with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add noodles and cook following the instructions on the package. Once the noodles are tender, drain, rinse, and set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, place oil, garlic, onion, peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, shrimp, salt, and pepper, toss to combine. Transfer veggies and shrimp to a large baking sheet, spreading the contents out in an even layer, and place in the oven. 
  • Bake for 12-20 minutes or until the veggies are tender-crisp and the shrimp are cooked through. 
  • Transfer the baked shrimp, veggies, and tomatoes to a clean, large bowl. Add the noodles and toss to combine. 
  • Divide pasta between plates and sprinkle with basil and provolone before serving.
