Easy Zucchini Parmesan with Shrimp

Life isn’t always easy.

Sometimes, we sleep through our alarms. We break glasses. Spill coffee. Fail tests. Get rejected from job after job.

We are mean to those who love us. And sometimes, people we love are mean to us.

We drink ourselves into oblivion. We eat terrible food that makes us feel terrible later.

We try, and fail, to quit bad habits.

And then there are those moments, those brief but intense moments of being, when we are so filled with light that it is all worth it.

No, life is definitely not easy. But, when given the option, it is too good to miss.

Easy Zucchini Parmesan with Shrimp (serves 6)

Recipe adapted from Taste of Home

  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4″ slices
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced Italian tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 12 oz shrimp
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, saute garlic in oil. Add zucchini; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Stir in the tomatoes, pesto, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and continue simmering until liquid is absorbed and mixture is heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
