An Italian-American innovation, scampi is a popular dish of shrimp (or similar shellfish) served in a garlicky lemon-butter sauce. Here, we’re going the extra mile by tossing our shrimp with fresh linguine, and adding seasonal broccoli to the sauce (chopped finely and sautéed in the butter). With a garnish of parsley and Parmesan, this delicious recipe makes for an easy, gourmet pasta night.

2 Make the vinaigrette:

In a bowl, combine ¼ of the cheese and the juice of 4 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined.

3 Cook the pasta:

Using your hands, carefully separate the strands of the pasta; add to the pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ¾ cup of the pasta cooking water, thoroughly drain the cooked pasta. Set aside in a warm place.

To the pot of broccoli and shrimp, add the cooked pasta, remaining butter, the juice of the remaining lemon wedges and ½ cup of the reserved pasta cooking water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until well combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Just before serving, in a large bowl, combine the lettuce and cucumber; season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like (you may have extra).
