Wash produce before use


Cook the penne

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the penne and cook until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, reserving ½ cup [¾ cup] pasta cooking water. While the water is heating and the penne is cooking, prepare your protein.


Prep and cook your protein

  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch pieces. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters. 
  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed; cut the beans into 1-inch lengths.

In the same pan used for your protein, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the shallots and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and green beans, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are browned and the beans are crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Add ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until thickened slightly, about 1 minute.


Finish the dish

To the pan with the vegetables, stir in the arrabbiata sauce base and reserved pasta cooking water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the penne, your protein, and capers; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the penne, your protein, vegetables, and sauce to individual bowls and serve.
