Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. While pasta cooks, heat a large skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. Season shrimp with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and add to the skillet. Sauté for about 3 to 4 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add remaining olive oil to the pan, keeping at medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sautéing for about 3 minutes or until onions turn translucent. Add the zucchini, bell pepper, Italian seasoning and the remaining salt and pepper and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Add the butter and wine to the pan, stirring well. Bring to a simmer and turn heat to low to keep at a simmer. Simmer for several minutes and add shrimp back to pan to heat through. Adjust seasonings as needed.
  5. Serve shrimp and vegetable mixture over pasta with shaved parmesan and if desired, fresh herbs such as basil (optional).
Recipe Notes

Nutrition Nugget: We like to recommend everything whole grain due to the added fiber in whole grain products. However, if your family does not eat whole grain pasta yet, you could try serving ¾ white spaghetti and ¼ whole wheat spaghetti. Then, gradually change the ratio so that eventually, you are serving all whole wheat pasta.
