summer shrimp, garden veggie & pesto pasta

summer shrimp

I saw a pic on facebook today that inspired tonight’s dinner!! The zucchini, yellow squash and pesto all came from my garden! This meal was so fresh and yummy! I think you will agree it’s a keeper!!

1 box pasta of your choice, just undercooked

1 cup of Perfect Pesto 

2 zucchini, sliced

2 squash, sliced

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half

1 shallot, diced

1 pound shrimp

juice from 1 lemon

salt & pepper

Cut all veggies and place on parchment or in a pyrex dish place in 350 oven for 10 mins . Peel, devein shrimp, toss with olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper place on parchment or foil lined cookie sheet and roast on 350 for 8 mins. Cook pasta just shy if being done and pour almost water, reserve apx 1/4 cup of pasta water. Add pesto to pasta and then top with veggies & shrimp. ENJOY!
