National Pasta Day- Recipe to Celebrate

Pasta is a type of noodle of traditional Italian cuisine, with the first reference dating to 1154 in Sicily and first attested in English in 1874.  Typically, it is made from unleavened dough of durum wheat flour that is mixed with water or eggs and formed into sheets or various shapes. It is then cooked and served in a variety of dishes.

 

Shrimp and Zucchini Fettuccine Alfredo

 

1 lb. Fettuccine, dry

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp. garlic, chopped

2 Tbsp. parsley, chopped

1 zucchini, medium— cut into 2” x 1/4” sticks

1 lb. shrimp, large, peeled and deveined

1 cup dry white wine

3/4 tsp. black pepper

3/4 tsp. salt

4 Tbsp. butter

Dash parsley, chopped

8 lemon wedges

 

Directions:

  •    Cook fettuccine according to package directions.

 

  •  Heat oil in large sauté pan over medium heat while pasta is cooking.

 

  • Add chopped garlic and parsley; cook for 1 minute. Add zucchini and cook another minute. Add shrimp, wine, salt, pepper and butter. Stir well and cook shrimp for 5 minutes or until they are no longer opaque. Let sauce simmer to thicken slightly.
