  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup onion sweet onion diced
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 bulbs Roasted Garlic see recipe below
  • 2 cups shrimp stock see recipe below
  • ½ cup wine white
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 2 lemons zested
  • 12 ounces shrimp Large, raw
  • 6 ounces broccoli
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese grated. plus more for garnish

Shrimp Stock

  • 1 tsp old bay see post for alternatives
  • Shells from 12-16 ounces of large shrimp
  • 2 ½ cups water

For the Roasted Garlic

  • 2 bulbs garlic I usually do 4-5 at a time
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  • Peel the shrimp, chop the onion, red pepper, mince the garlic, and chop those broccoli florets into small pieces no bigger than a dime. 
  • Make the shrimp stock and roast the garlic. Please note that the time to do this is not included in the 20 minute total recipe time. 
  • Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil and 2 Tbsp of butter in the inner pot of the NInja Foodi on high saute. Add diced onions and red pepper. Saute for 1 minute. 
  • Add in 1 Tbsp of minced garlic, ½ tsp sea salt and saute for 2 minutes. 
  • Add in the cloves from 2 bulbs of roasted garlic. 
  • Pour in the shrimp stock and wine. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to remove any brown bits that might be on the bottom. 
  • Zest 2 lemons into the inner pot of the Ninja Foodi. 
  • Break the angel hair pasta in half and layer on top in a crisscross fashion. Place the pressure lid on the Ninja Foodi and set on LOW pressure for 1 minute. When the time is up, allow to natural release for 1 minute and then release the remaining pressure. 
  • Remove the lid and stir. Add the shrimp and the broccoli florets and stir so the shrimp is covered by the pasta. Close the lid and let it sit 5 minutes, but keep the Ninja Foodi off. 
  • Add in grated Parmesan cheese. Toss to combine and add in remaining shrimp stock and 2 Tbsp of butter if needed for more liquid. 

Shrimp Stock

  • Add the 2 ½ cups of water, 1 tsp of Old Bay, and shrimp shells. Put the pressure lid on and pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. Immediately release the pressure. 
  • Strain the shrimp shells and reserve the stock. 

Roasted Garlic

  • Cut the top off of 2 garlic bulbs so the cloves are exposed. Drizzle 1 tsp of olive oil on top of each one. Wrap in foil. 
  • Place on the rack in the low position and set the Bake/Roast temp to 325° F. Bake for 35 minutes.
