Ingredients

  • 12 ounces uncooked linguine pasta
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth or for that white wine flavor, use 1 cup of white wine + 3 cups of broth
  • 1 cup frozen diced onion thawed
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic or more if you like it really garlicky!
  • 4 ounces about 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese divided (plus additional for serving)
  • 1 lb. large 31-40 count peeled and deveined shrimp (frozen is fine), thawed
  • Chopped fresh parsley
  • Butter optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F (220C). Spray a large baking dish (I used a deep 9 x 13-inch dish) with cooking spray.
  • In the prepared dish, arrange uncooked linguine in an even layer (breaking the long noodles into smaller pieces as you put them in the dish). In a separate bowl, whisk together chicken broth, onion, garlic and ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese. Pour chicken broth mixture over the uncooked pasta in the dish and toss gently to combine everything. 
  • Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes, stirring halfway through the baking time. Kitchen tongs work really well for tossing and stirring the pasta, if you have them.
  • Uncover; stir again. At this point you should check the pasta to make sure that it is al dente (firm but just about finished cooking). If it’s still too hard, cover the dish and return to the oven until pasta is al dente. Then move on to the next step.
  • Stir the raw shrimp into the pasta dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 more minutes (or until cheese is melted and shrimp is pink). Keep an eye on it to make sure that you don’t overcook the shrimp.
  • Stir in a few pats of butter, if desired, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with fresh parsley and additional grated Parmesan cheese.
