Penne with Roasted Shrimp and Vegetables
Chop 1/3c mushrooms, 1 crown of broccoli, 6 cherry tomatoes into bite size pieces.Devein 10 medium shrimp. I keep the shell on because I find the shrimp stay more succulent this way. Roast veggies and shrimp in the oven with 2t olive oil, 1t salt, 1/2t pepper for 12-16 minutes at 400. Cook 3oz whole wheat pasta as directed on box, then drain reserving 3T cooking water. Combine drained pasta with 1T goat cheese and 1/4c shredded mozzarella cheese in a serving bowl. Mix cheese with pasta until melted, add water slowly if needed. Mix in shrimp and veggies. Toss to coat. Serves: 2. Points Plus: 8
