Seafood Pesto Pasta



This dish is so easy and Delicious. I first made it from Ingredients only purchased from Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's has a seafood medley with shrimp, scallops and calamari in their frozen food section (about $6.00 for the bag) that is so easy to use and I also purchase a bag of Trottole, zucchini, garlic and olive oil and this time I added some home made pesto and WOW was it great.

Start a pot of water to boil. season with salt. Once boiling add pasta

Mince garlic and place in a large cold pan with 2 or 3 T of Olive oil

Slice zucchini and add to garlic and saute for about 3 -4 minutes. Add the seafood and cook until it is opaque.

drain pasta (follow package directions for cookign time)

Mix cooked pasta, seafood and about 1/3 of a cup of pesto, squeeze of lemon (lemon is a must) and serve.

Yum, I love pasta dishes. I think the idea of having so much variety in one dish is what I like most. This one is a great idea for a quick meal that is tasty and filling. The frozen seafood is an excellent idea!
