  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 green onions (separate green parts from white parts)
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage (I used a bag with a mix of shredded green and red cabbage and carrots.)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper diced
  • 12 ounces to 1 pound small shrimp deveined and tails removed
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 package Barilla Ready Pasta (I used the Gemelli variety)


  • Heat sesame oil in a large wok or skillet. 
  • Add the green onions (white parts) and vegetables to the hot pan. Stir fry until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add shrimp, pasta and soy sauce or liquid aminos- toss around in the hot pan to combine and continue to cook for about 5 minutes and until shrimp is fully cooked. Serve, topped with remaining green onions!
