Easy Weeknight Meal: Summer Squash & Shrimp Pasta

Pasta Recipe
If you are like me, you have a bounty of fresh zucchini and yellow squash either from your own garden or from a family member or friends garden. I have received numerous zucchini’s this year so far and I’ve been grilling, frying, and chopping them into salads and other dishes. Here is an easy weeknight meal to prepare using your delicious squash, adding some shrimp and seasonings to get a tasty dinner on the table quickly

1 lb angel hair pasta
8 oz shrimp
2 medium zucchini, cut into cubes
1 yellow squash, cut into cubes
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 shallot, cut into rings
Olive oil
1 cup light white wine
Salt and pepper to taste
¾ Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
Pasta Recipe
 Boil the pasta according to package directions. In a deep skillet, add the olive oil and garlic and heat until garlic is partially cooked. Add the zucchini and squash and shallots. Cook until the zucchini and squash have softened. Remove.

Doesn't this look great? Yes it does and it tasted better then it looked. The fresh flavors of the squash was outstanding. I sprinkled a bit of goat cheese on top instead of Parmesan and it gave it a creamy flavor on top of everything else.
