Shrimp Pasta

  • 1.5 cups of whole wheat pasta
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 1/2 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 tbs. evoo

Cook the pasta according the the package directions, drain and set aside. In a skillet, saute the zucchini and squash in 1/2 tbs. evoo until tender, and then add to the pasta. Return the pan to the heat, add the shrimp and cook for 1-2 minutes (just until pink). Then add the shrimp to the pasta/zucchini.

Sauce:

  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 small tomato, chopped

Return the same pan to the stove (always trying to cut down on dish duty) and add the butter. When butter is melted, add 2 tbs. flour and whisk for about a minute. When flour has cooked down, add the milk, and stir until thickened and add the tomato.

Combine the sauce with the pasta/shrimp/veggies and enjoy!
