Dry sherry flavors the broth, and the crushed red pepper adds a tiny bite to this seafood and pasta dinner entree.


  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen peeled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 8 ounces dried linguini
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves (optional)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Asiago cheese
  • Toasted pine nuts (optional)


  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. In a Dutch oven, cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Return to Dutch oven; cover and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup broth, sherry or additional broth, lemon juice, crushed red pepper, and salt; set aside.

Return shrimp mixture to skillet; heat through.
