You can vary this recipe to your own tastes. I most always add onions to the garlic when frying and skip the minced green onions. I have used baby portobello mushrooms also. I always use fresh garlic! This is hubby’s favorite meal.

Ingredients:

  • ½ pound dried penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups thinly sliced yellow squash
  • 3 cups thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 pound medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup minced fresh chives or green onions
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and pour into a large bowl.

Meanwhile, warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in squash and zucchini, and cook 10 minutes. Stir in shrimp, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook 2 minutes more.

Pour shrimp and sauce into large bowl with pasta. Sprinkle with chives and Parmesan, and stir to combine.
