Ingredients for Ninja Foodi Linguine and Shrimp

  • Shrimp: Tender seafood that adds a delicate sweetness and texture to the dish, complementing the creamy sauce and pasta perfectly.
  • Olive oil: Infuses a rich flavor into the dish and helps sauté the shrimp and garlic, enhancing the overall taste profile.
  • Garlic: Adds a robust, aromatic flavor to the sauce, creating a savory base that elevates the taste of the linguine and shrimp.
  • Red pepper flakes: Provides a subtle heat that balances the creaminess of the sauce, adding a hint of spice to the dish.
  • Chicken broth: Enhances the depth of flavor in the sauce, infusing it with savory notes and creating a more complex taste.
  • Heavy cream: Creates a luscious, creamy sauce that coats the linguine and shrimp, adding richness and a velvety texture.
  • Parmesan cheese: Offers a salty, nutty flavor that melts into the sauce, providing a cheesy umami taste to the linguine and shrimp.
  • Fresh parsley: Brightens the dish with a pop of color and freshness, adding a hint of herbaceousness to the overall flavor profile.
