Remember back in the day those commercials for Prince Spaghetti....
visualize...Old Italian village...dinner time,
Mamasita calling her beloved son
home for dinner..."Anthony, Anthony...", in the late 70's
I think they added a girl's name--"Maria, Maria.."
I think it's a pasta day for us today...so I thought I would
share a delicious recipe with you!
1-3 tbs Olive oil
2 Shallots (minced)
2 zucchini (cut lengthwise, then 1/4" pieces to look like half moon)
2 yellow squash (same as above)
1 pint of grape tomatoes (cut in 1/2)
1-2 lbs raw shrimp (peeled, deveined)
1 tbs lemon zest (just the yellow stuff, not the white)
1 cup Italian parsley (finely chopped)
1 cup basil (finely chopped)
fresh ground pepper
1-2 lbs Thin spaghetti (cooked Al Dante)*
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
*You can also substitute spaghetti squash
"On top of spaghetti" CD
Heat Olive oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan) in a sauce pan, add shallots, saute until transparent, add zucchini and yellow squash, saute 3-4 minutes then set aside.
In a separate pan, heat olive oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan), add shrimp and cook till pink 2-4 minutes depending on the size.
Add shrimp to veggie mixture, toss mixture with cooked pasta then add tomatoes, lemon zest, parsley, basil, salt and pepper to taste...enjoy!
