5 stars from 1 rating of Shrimp Broccoli Bake

What a feast!

This shrimp bake is going to make your guests very happy. It's easy enough for a mid-week meal for a family of four, but can be made for a crowd!


I use a hand-held lemon grater to grate the cheese finely to melt easier.

  • 1/2 stick Butter, sliced
  • 12 ounce bag Frozen shrimp size medium, with tails removed
  • 16 ounce bag Frozen broccoli

  1. Boil 6 cups of water
  2. Add pasta and cook until fork tender
  3. Drain pasta and pour into glass Pyrex dish, size 9 x 13
  4. Add frozen shrimp
  5. Add frozen broccoli
  6. Mix together
  7. Add butter slices
  8. Grate bar of cheddar cheese evenly over the top
  9. Bake
  10. Sprinkle parmesan cheese all over evenly when finished baking

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Serves 4

      This recipe is easy to make and healthy too. We have a store here that sells shrimp for $5 a bag. It's really economical to make this dish here. But shrimp may not be that inexpensive in all places. I've also used chicken to make it if it was on sale. Thank you for commenting DDE!

      Thank you for your comment! If I had some whole wheat pasta, it would have been really healthy!

      Interesting recipe. This shrimp, broccoli, and Penne pasta bake with grated cheddar looks really good as can be seen in the images. Now I want to try some. This does seem like an easy recipe to make and doesn't take much time either.

      Thank you! I usually make a shrimp pasta dish with a butter sauce. Last night I was in the mood for something different and remembered I had a block of cheese in the fridge. Then I decided to bake the whole thing to melt the cheese over it. It came out great!
