Shrimp Scampi with Spaghetti and Zucchini

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

You can mix the zucchini and shrimp together if you want before serving. I like the difference in the textures when you look at it but it is not necessary. Enjoy

This was delicious! I used Campanelle pasta shells in place of the spaghetti. Worked out nicely. I kinda guess on how much butter (2Tbs) to use since it didn't say in the ingredients and I also added alittle more olive oil. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Delicate yet flavoursome, and elegant enough for a dinner party! The only change I made was to use slightly more lemon & zest, considerably more Tabasco & a sprinkling of freshly cracked pepper. I added the zucchini to the shrimp towards the end of the cooking time, which worked out well. Thank you for a delicious recipe I will make again.
