In need of a healthy meal after a long day? 😛
This Ribbony Shrimp and Pasta Scampi from the Food Network should hit the spot!
Ingredients: - Kosher salt - 8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti - 1 yellow squash - 1 zucchini - 1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp, tails removed - Freshly ground black pepper - 2 tablespoons olive oil - 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved - 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped - Pinch crushed red pepper flakes, optional - 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth - 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook al dente.
2. While the pasta cooks, trim the top and bottom off of the squash. Peel the squash to ribbons into a colander, using a vegetable peeler, turning the squash as you peel. Stop peeling the squash when you only have the center core of seeds left.
3. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water, and then drain the pasta over the squash ribbons. Put in a medium bowl and toss to evenly distribute the pasta with the squash ribbons.
4. Toss the shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and some pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, spread into a single layer and cook without stirring, until just turning pink around the edges, about 2 minutes. Stir the shrimp, add the tomatoes, garlic and pepper flakes and continue to cook until the tomatoes have softened and the garlic has toasted, about 1 minute. Add the pasta and squash ribbons, broth and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook, tossing, until warmed through and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add the pasta water a bit at a time, if needed, if the noodles seem dry.
Season with additional salt and pepper. Divide among 4 bowls and top with the chives.
