  • 1

    lb pasta

  • 4

    tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 1/2

    lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1

    lemon, juiced

  • 1

    small yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 1

    cup cherry tomatoes

  • 2

    cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1

    head of broccoli, florets only, pulsed in a food processor until finely chopped

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and drain pasta in a colander and rinse with cold water. Set aside. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper and the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Transfer the seasoned shrimp to the hot oil and cook, 2 minutes on each side, until pink and fully cooked. Remove the shrimp from the skillet once cooked and set aside. Place the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil back into the skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and tomatoes and saute for 2-3 minutes until translucent and the tomatoes are slightly cooked. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and saute for 2-3 minutes until bright green. Add the goat cheese and 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water and stir to combine until you have a creamy consistency. Add more of the reserved water if needed to ensure a creamy consistency. Add the cooked pasta and the cooked shrimp and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
