summer spaghetti...

It's sweltering here in Dallas.
As a result, I haven't been cooking very much... boo.
I did, however, make this the other night and it was light and delicious.
Shrimp, zucchini, and squash just say summer to me.

Let's make it! Here's what you'll need...

About 2 pounds of jumbo shrimp, peeled and tails removed.

Squash and zucchini, sliced.

Lemon juice and fresh basil.
You'll also need about 1 cup of white wine... that is, if you're a sinner like me.
And, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper.

Spaghetti, cooked.

Saute your veggies for about 2 minutes in a little butter and olive oil.
Generously sprinkle on the your garlic powder, onion powder,
and salt and pepper.

Add the shrimp. Stir.

Squeeze the juice of two lemons, about 2 tablespoons, over.

Pour in the white... yum.

Give it a nice stir.

Continue to cook until the shrimp are pink and cooked through.

Serve over the spaghetti.
You could also sprinkle over some fresh grated
Parmesan cheese for some extra goodness.

Serve with some fresh, warm bread.

Enjoy and stay cool.
