    Does anybody like shrimp & pasta? I do, especially with butter & garlic. The following is a concoction I came up with. Maybe some of you have made similar recipes. There are no set rules or recipes to put this together. Just a basic concept. I like to put this together in three distinct layers in a large bowl, or deep platter..
    Bottom layer: Pasta. Any type. I’m partial to spaghetti, or linguini.
    Second layer: sliced celery, zucchini medallions, summer squash medallions, sliced scallions , & some fresh tomatoes pieces chopped, or salad tomatoes. All sautéed to tender crisp in garlic butter and /or oil. (seasoned to taste)
    Top layer: Sautéed fresh shrimp in garlic butter and/ or oil. Add some more tomatoes with the shrimp, just enough to wilt the tomatoes.
    I’m very generous with the butter, & garlic. Garlic bread, sprinkle cheese, a tossed salad, and a bottle of wine. That’s my kind of dinner.

    I looooove shrimp and pasta! Its so easy to make, takes only the time that it takes to cook the pasta, and voila youve got a great, healthy dinner in no time!

    I really love this shrimp and zucchini recipe that I found here: http://www.gourmandize.com/

    Basically you just make pasta, then sautee a zucchini with garlic, olive oil and shrimp. You can add fennel too if you like it. Then top with fresh herbs like parsley or coriander. It's delicious!

    The whole recipe is here http://www.gourmandize.com/recipe-63079-pasta-with-shrimp-and-zucchini.htm

    Enjoy!
