This "experimental" dish just came to be one afternoon.. & man was it delicious! It worked, the ingredients married one another & not to mention it was pretty simple to execute. Hope you enjoy!
1 lb. linguine pasta
2 cloves of garlic (thinly sliced)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 lbs shrimp
1 red bell pepper (quartered)
1 yellow bell pepper (quartered)
2 zucchini's (quartered)
1 pkg. of cherry tomatoes (halved)
1 red onion (sliced into chucks)
Preheat oven at 400.
Place all veggies on a baking sheet & drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper. Add sliced garlic on top & mix to combine seasonings. Roast at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until veggies are slightly tender. Next place shrimp on a baking sheet, add olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic (minced). Place in the oven during last 10 minutes before the veggies are done. Make sure shrimp is placed on the top rack.
Meanwhile, cook pasta accordingly, drain & set aside. (Reserve 1/4 pasta water)
Prepare a large mixing bowl or pot to combine all ingredients.
Take both veggies & shrimp out of the oven. Add to pasta, along with the reserved water & combine.
Finish with parsley & your desired amount of Parmesan cheese.
This meal may require a ton of dishes, but the actual preparation is simple! Don't be intimated!
