Shrimp, Parmesan, ricotta, and mozzarella are baked into a creamy pasta sauce in this hearty and satisfying Baked Shrimp Scampi Pasta.



1 teaspoon jarred minced garlic

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 pound raw shrimp thawed (I use peeled, deveined, & tails off)

1/3 c. whole milk

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 c. chicken broth

1 egg (slightly beaten)

1/4 c. ricotta cheese

1/8 c. shredded Parmesan cheese

4 ounces uncooked pasta (any shape)

1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper


Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

Following the package directions, cook the pasta.

At the same time, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Mix in the minced garlic and flour, and cook, stirring all the time, until the mixture starts to bubble. Mix in the milk, broth, salt, and pepper slowly.

About 2 to 3 minutes of cooking and stirring. Take it off the heat and put it to the side. Rinse the pasta with cold water, drain it again, and then rinse it again.

Put the beaten egg, Parmesan cheese, and ricotta cheese in a small bowl and set it aside.

Use non-stick spray to coat two 18.6-ounce baking dishes.

Whisk the pasta, cheese mixture, and broth mixture together.

Pour half of the pasta mixture into each of the two dishes. Place the shrimp on top of the pasta mixture. Shred some mozzarella cheese and chop some fresh parsley and sprinkle it on top.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven.

Give this dish 5 minutes to cool down before you serve it. Cork trivets can be used to protect tables and other surfaces from hot dishes.


For this recipe, I use frozen shrimp that has been peeled, deveined, and tails off. Before using, thaw the frozen shrimp.

So the eggs do not cook too early when mixed with the pasta, ensure the pasta is rinsed with cold water.

How To Make it Gluten free

Replace all-purpose flour with rice flour.

Use gluten-free spaghetti such as rice noodles, Angel hair rice pasta, or quinoa mix pastas.

Chicken broth is gluten-free, but always check the label for any gluten-contaminating ingredients. You can also replace it with vegetable broth, shrimp stock, or white wine.
