Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 (10 ounce) package penne pasta
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup grated Romano cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter and vegetable oil large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp, 2 tablespoons parsley, and dill. Cook and stir, flipping shrimp halfway, until pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Move shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  • Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet, stirring into the shrimp juices. Add flour; whisk until fully combined and starting to turn golden, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add chicken broth and milk in that order; whisk to combine. Stir in tomatoes, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Bring sauce to a simmer.
  • Stir 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and Romano cheese into the sauce until cheeses begin to melt and sauce is creamy. Add 1 tablespoon mozzarella cheese. Mix in about 1/2 the cooked penne to start; add more if there is enough sauce to coat. Add the shrimp and stir to combine. Top with the remaining parsley, Parmesan, and mozzarella.
  • Bake in the preheated oven and bake until top is golden and sauce bubbles around the edges of the skillet, 8 to 10 minutes.
