  • cooking spray
  • ¾ pound Roma (plum) tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 (16 ounce) package angel hair pasta
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, or more to taste
  • salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1 pound butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons grated red onion
  • 6 cloves garlic, or more to taste, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh basil, divided
  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 10fresh mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.


  • Step 2

    Arrange tomato halves onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Roast tomatoes in preheated oven until edges are crisp, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool; cut into small chunks.

  • Step 4

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes; drain. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • Step 5

    Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Cook and stir onion, garlic, and half the basil in the hot butter until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Stir shrimp, tomato chunks, mushrooms, and garlic powder into the onion mixture. Increase heat to medium-low and cook and stir until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 6 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Pour shrimp mixture over the angel hair pasta; top with Parmesan cheese and lemon juice and toss to coat pasta completely. Garnish with remaining basil.
