This super easy recipe is just as delicious as it is fun to make. With only five main ingredients (minus seasonings) you should have a delightful family friendly alternative to spaghetti and pasta sauce in only 30 minutes!
This recipe is very close to my heart. My mother taught me this and I added the shrimp at some point. I could probably eat the entire thing. I grew up with this recipe and its funny how even this simple recipe has stuck with me all these years. Your kids will definitely love it to!
A few tips to help you. First, be sure to slightly undercook the pasta. You’ll be pan frying it briefly and want it to be a little underdone so that it doesn’t get too sticky. This is true for the broccoli as well. You do not want them mushy. Second, shrimp can be precooked but fresh (or frozen) is preferred so that it absorbs some of the flavor. Finally, add the red pepper flakes to your desired spiciness. I make it a little less spicy for my kids.
Hope you enjoyed making this simple but delicious dish. It is super customizable if you want to add or remove anything it should still be pretty good. Let me know if you try any new combinations and I will definitely try them and update this recipe.
