Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small jalapeno chile pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup seeded and sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 1/4 cups jarred or boxed unsalted crushed tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp chile powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 8 oz peeled and deveined shrimp (TIP: Frozen and thawed will work here, too.)
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Mist a 3-cup ovenproof baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Mist a large sauté pan with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add pasta and toast, stirring constantly, until noodles are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. In same pan, heat oil on medium. Add jalapeno, onion and bell pepper and sauté until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  4. Return pasta to pan. Add broth, 1 cup water, tomatoes, chile powder, cumin, oregano, salt and black pepper. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, then cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until pasta is almost tender, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Transfer 1 1/2 cups pasta mixture to prepared baking dish. Break egg and gently place in center of baking dish. Bake until egg whites are just set, about 7 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, fold shrimp into remaining pasta mixture, cover, and return to stove top on medium-low heat. Cook until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle cilantro over both dishes and serve with lime wedges.
