Lemon Garlic Shrimp Penne

10 Apr

I made this a couple of months ago, and kind of forgot about it. I was going through pictures on my camera, and found it. We both liked this recipe. My husband thought it needed more garlic. I even used Parmesan cheese that had extra garlic in it. I will be making this again!

Meanwhile, cook pasta al dente and drain. Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray. Add pasta to shrimp mixture and stir to coat pasta. Spread in baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove foil, stir, and sprinkle the rest of the Parmesan cheese over the top. Bake for an additional 5 minutes until shrimp is done.
