Baked Ziti with Shrimp


Uncooked « Ziti », I used an 8-oz package.

Large peeled shrimp, I used 8-ounces chopped.

8-oz.Of bay scallops.

An 8-oz block.Of fat-free cream cheese; softened at room temp.

3-oz.Of shredded sharp provolone cheese.

Hot water; half a cup.

Roasted red bell peppers, use 12-oz bottle.

1 Tbsp.Of olive oil

Table salt, to ur liking.

4 minced garlic cloves.

1 Tbsp.Of chopped fresh parsley.


As usual, I started by preheating my oven to 400°.

And following the package guidelines, I cooked the pasta without adding any salt or butter. You must drain the water well at this step.

In a food processor, I combined hot water with roasted red bell peppers, and softened cream cheese; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.

In a Dutch oven, I heated the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering, and I tossed in the salt and sautéed for 2 minutes, just until the shrimp and scallops were nearly done.

Next, I added the pepper mix to the pan and bring it to a simmer, reduced the heat to medium and I cooked for 2 minutes, stirring regularly, then I tossed the pasta and parsley into the shrimp mixture until everything is thoroughly combined.

Following that, I spread the pasta mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish that has been gently sprayed with cooking spray and I topped with shredded cheese, spreading it evenly.

Then, I baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, and then I removed the pan from the oven.

You can add more cheese if you want, return the pan to the oven and broil for more than 2 minutes, or until the cheese has browned slightly.

Lastly, I removed the pan from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.
