> 1 (13.2 oz) box whole-grain penne
> 3 cups broccoli florets
> 1/4 cup olive oil
> 1 bunch green onions
> 12 oz peeled, deveined shrimp
> 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
> 1 tsp crushed red pepper


Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil on high. Add the penne and cook according to package directions. Add the broccoli to pot 2 min. before pasta is cooked. Before draining, reserve ½ cup cooking liquid.
Meanwhile, in a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat the oil on medium. Add the green onions and cook 2 min., stirring often. Add the shrimp, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cook 4–5 min., until shrimp are cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, toss cooked penne and broccoli with shrimp mixture, adding some cooking liquid if needed. Season with salt to taste.
