Don't skip the cornstarch mixture here--it helps the garlicky sauce cling to the pasta.
8 ounces uncooked thin spaghetti
12 ounces broccoli florets
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons canola oil
10 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved or grated (about 1/4 cup)
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Add broccoli in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain.
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes on each side. Remove shrimp from pan.
Heat pan over medium-low heat. Add butter and oil; swirl to coat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add stock; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Combine 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture into stock mixture; cook 1 minute. Stir in shrimp, pasta mixture, parsley, rind, juice, and salt; cook 1 minute, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
