No-Cook Green Harissa Pasta with Shrimp and Feta

  • FAST

A blender makes quick work of this clever harissa sauce, which is spicy and bright and laced with delicious spices. It's excellent tossed with warm pasta.


  1. 1 cup lightly packed mint leaves
  2. 1 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves and stems
  3. 3 jalapeños, seeded and coarsely chopped
  4. 1 garlic clove
  5. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel
  7. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  8. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  9. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. 12 ounces gemelli or other noodles, cooked al dente and drained
  2. 1 pound shelled cooked medium shrimp
  3. 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  1. In a food processor, combine all of the sauce ingredients and pulse until a sauce forms. Toss with the hot pasta and shrimp and serve topped with the feta.
