  • 1 lb Penne Pasta
  • 1 lb Raw Large Shrimp Peeled and Cleaned
  • 4 Coves of Garlic Minced
  • 12 oz of Whole Milk
  • 3 oz of Cream Cheese
  • 3 tbls Olive Oil
  • 2 tbls Flour
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 14.5oz Can Fire-Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1.5 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Small Lemon Juice and Zest
  • ¼ Cup Fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cook the pasta to al dente according the box directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1tbls of olive oil over medium heat. Add the shrimp in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil to the skillet, followed by the flour. Whisk and cook until the roux turns brown and smells nutty- about 5 minutes. Add the milk and chicken stock slowly and whisk to prevent lumps.
  • To the milk mixture add the cream cheese, garlic, onion powder, and red pepper flakes. Simmer until cheese melts and the sauce thickens - about 5-7 minutes. Taste and season if needed.
  • Remove from the heat and add the pasta, shrimp, parsley, lemon juice, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese to the skillet. Mix until combined well.
  • Top with Parmesan cheese and bake 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and everything is warmed through.
  • Remove from the oven, top with lemon zest and more fresh parsley!
