I love Stir Fry Vegetables with Shrimp and could eat this stuff all week long. And stir-frying is so easy. Perfect for a weeknight meal. Quick and Easy!

This recipe has lots of vegetables, Green Bell Pepper, Onion, Mushrooms, and Zucchini. Plus cute little bow-tie pasta. And Shrimp.

Can I just say that I LOVE shrimp. So, really, any recipe that has shrimp in it is something that I’m going to enjoy!

Ingredients Needed to Make Stir Fry Vegetables with Shrimp

  • multi-colored bow tie pasta
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • butter
  • green bell pepper
  • sweet onion
  • button mushrooms
  • zucchini
  • garlic
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • seasoned salt
  • medium-large shrimp
  • Parmesan cheese

Preparing the Ingredients

Call me weird, but I really get into cutting vegetables on my wooden chopping block. And this recipe has lots of vegetables to cut–zucchini, green pepper, mushrooms, and onions. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not fast as lightening. Chop, chop, chop. But it’s fun, and it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Like I’m really cooking in the kitchen!

Do Your Prep Work in Advance

So, the first thing you’ll want to do is prepare your vegetables. It’s always a good idea to do the prep work in advance or at least before you begin cooking. That way you’ll have all your needed ingredients at hand when it’s time to cook. This is especially handy when you do any kind of stir-fry.

With that in mind, chop your green bell pepper and onions. Then slice your mushrooms and zucchini. Mince your garlic.

Using a colander, thaw frozen shrimp under cool running water. Shell and devein. You can use precooked shrimp if you want, but cooking shrimp is not hard to do. So go ahead and buy those ugly gray ones in the store. Raw shrimp will be fresher, plus it’s less expensive!

Time to Stir Fry

Once your vegetables are prepared, go ahead and cook your pasta. In a large saucepan, cook bow tie pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water for use later, then drain and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat butter and oil. Over medium heat, saute the green pepper, onion, and mushrooms for 2-3 minutes. Add zucchini and garlic and cook for another 3-4 minutes until zucchini is lightly browned, stirring frequently. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and seasoned salt.

Lastly, add in your shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes until shrimp turns pink. Pour a little pasta water to the shrimp if necessary to make a nice consistency of the sauce.

When ready to serve, toss vegetables with drained pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. This recipe will serve 4-6 people.

Wine Suggestion: Pighin Pinot Grigio or Cambria Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir.

  2. 3 stars
    Quite buttery / oily. You might like to scale down the initial added oil/butter mix. I really enjoyed eating this because I love shrimp. However it’s slightly tasteless. If you enjoy spiced food you might want to add something for flavour.
