    Shrimp, Vegetables and Whole Wheat Pasta

    Makes 6 servings
    Prep Time: 15 min | Cooking Time: 10 min

    This is a very attractive one-dish meal with lots of color, and it's simple to make and tastes great. It looks like a lot of food on the plate, so it satisfies you visually, but it is loaded with vegetables and there's not too much pasta.


    4 cups    whole wheat pasta (such as fusilli or penne)     1 L
    1 tbsp     olive oil     15 mL
    3              cloves garlic, minced     3 
    1              bunch broccoli, chopped     1 
    1              red bell pepper, sliced     1 
    2 cups     grape tomatoes, halved     500 mL
    12 oz       shrimp, peeled, deveined and halved     375 g
    1 tsp        dried Italian herb seasoning     5 mL
    1/2 tsp     salt     2 mL
    1/2 tsp     freshly ground black pepper     2 mL


    Step 1
    Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente (tender to the bite). Drain.

    Step 2
    Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and swirl to coat pan. Sauté garlic for 1 minute, being careful not to burn it. Add broccoli, red pepper and tomatoes; sauté for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp. Add shrimp and cook, turning once, until opaque and slightly browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in pasta, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
