Linguini with Shrimp and Zucchini
How about another easy pasta dish so you don't have to spend too much in the kitchen? After all it is summertime, and no one wants to spend hours in front of a hot stove. I was lucky to have some marinara sauce in the freezer. So it was simply a matter of sauteing the zucchini, cooking the shrimp, and tossing the lot in the pasta. How easy is that?
For the marinara sauce recipe, simply use the search engine which will direct you to an older post. Once you have the sauce underway, start sauteing the zucchini in skillet with about 3 tablespoons of extra virgin oil. Set the zucchini aside and using the same pan, heat another 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the shrimps to the pan, 2 cloves of garlic (chopped), and some fresh Italian parsley. The shrimp will take about two minutes to cook. To quote Jacques Pepin, this is, "fast food my way". Bon appetit!
