Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Olive oil
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • ¼ cup chicken broth if needed
  • 6 ounces prepared pasta – I used spaghetti noodles
  • ½ pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Lemon sliced
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese to serve
  • Chopped parsley to serve

Instructions

  • Set oven to broil.
  • Slice the bell pepper in half lengthwise and remove the stem and innards. Set it onto a baking sheet skin sides up along with the unpeeled garlic. Splash the garlic with a bit of olive oil and a bit of salt.
  • Set into the center of the oven and broil about 20 minutes, or until the skins char and blacken.
  • Remove from heat and wrap the peppers in paper towels to allow the skins to loosen. Peel and set the peppers into a food processor.
  • Squeeze garlic from their skins and add to the food processor.
  • Add goat cheese and process to form your creamy roasted red pepper sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you’d like to thin the sauce, add a bit of chicken broth and process.
  • For the shrimp, heat a small pan to medium-high heat. Drizzle the shrimp with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sear the shrimp a couple minutes each side, until cooked through.
  • Toss your prepared pasta with the roasted red pepper sauce. Top with seared shrimp, shredded Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Squeeze over a bit of lemon juice and serve!
