1/2 cup low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
2 lbs cooked, peeled, large shrimp

Prepare vemicelli according to package directions; keep warm.

In a food processor or blend, process the peppers, cream cheese, broth, garlic, and ground red pepper until smooth. Pour mixture into a large skillet.
