  1. Whisk yogurt, chicken broth, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, and 1 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until pasta is slightly cooled.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  4. Toss shrimp and 2 tablespoons olive oil together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a glass baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until shrimp are bright pink and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Toss pasta with dressing in a bowl. Add shrimp and scallions; season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and more pepper. Garnish pasta salad with Cheddar cheese and lemon slices.

So I made this hot instead of cold, for dinner, by cooking the shrimp in the dressing in a pan, and it was the best allrecipes meal that I made all week! We loved it and will def make again.

I thought it was okay. I used the rainbow rotini and double the dressing to make it less dry. No issues with the pepper, I thought it tasted fine. Not quite sure if I will make this again.
