This Tasty One-Pot Shrimp Fajita Pasta is quick, easy, and totally delicious! Pescatarian + Gluten-Free
By now we’re all well aware of my colorful veggie obsession, and after 9+ years of this dog and pony show, darlings, I have no plans of stopping now!
For some strange reason; however, I’ve never gone full-on fajita up in here.
Crazy right? It’s so very long overdue especially since I’m constantly making shrimp, chicken and veggie fajitas for dinner.
Paul’s weekly request for “fajita things” means I’m stocking my grocery cart with vibrant bell peppers, jalapeños, onion, cilantro, and limes, plus all the fixings for an epic bowl of guacamole to go with it. I would have actually photographed this deliciousness with a big ole mountain of guac but my 4 year old has made it her life’s goal to introduce all ripe avocados to her face the moment I bring them home.
I need an avocado tree, stat.
We’ve made this tasty one-pot shrimp fajita pasta twice now and, not to toot my own horn or anything, but it’s *tooting* awesome!
This crazy colorful dish features Chickapea Pasta, a tasty gluten-free pasta made with chickpeas and lentils <— that’s it!
Nothing sketchy and no weird preservatives or stabilizers. Just good ole legumes in a fun pasta shape.
With 27 grams of protein in each serving, it’s a powerhouse of an option for pasta night! Especially paired with shrimp in this saucy skillet!
Fun. Filling. Flipping Delicious. Let’s do this!
I don’t want to spend too much time waxing poetic about this pasta though because I NEED you to get in the kitchen and make it. Who needs a tortilla when you have this skillet of awesomeness on the table? Not us! Let’s get our fajita on, yo!
Or should I say one pan? One skillet? ONE HECKOFA DELICIOUS DISH? Let’s go with that! This fun twist on fajitas is destined to rock your plate.

Recipe yields 4 servings and can be easily halved to serve 2 if needed!
I’ve made this tasty pasta dish two ways – the first way is all in one pot (hence the title) by boiling the pasta in a large high-sided skillet, then transferring it to a bowl while you cook the shrimp and veggies. To save time, you can actually boil the pasta in a separate pot while cooking the rest of the dish and it goes even faster! Totally choose your favorite method here!
Have fun with the toppings and treat this sassy skillet the same way you would conventional fajitas. I mean, you could probably even throw caution to the wind and serve this shrimp fajita pasta IN a tortilla. I’m certain that wouldn’t be drastically breaking laws of nature or anything… or would it? The world may never know!
That was dramatic… just ditch the tortilla and try the pasta, will ya?
