Number of Servings: 2


    2 cups dry Penne ** I use brown rice pasta because I'm on a gluten-free diet
    1 tbsp canola or olive oil
    1 zucchini, julienned
    6 mushrooms, sliced
    10 large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 medium tomato, diced
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    4 tsp. Parmesan cheese
    1/2 tsp. lemon juice
    salt and pepper


In large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender but firm; drain and return to pot.

Meanwhile in a large skillet, heat 1/2 tbsp of the oil over high heat; stir fry zucchini and mushrooms until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

In skillet, heat remaining oil over high heat; cook shrimp and garlic, stirring, for 3 minutes or until shrimp is opaque. Add tomato and cook for 1 minute.

Add shrimp and zucchini mixture (including all liquids) to pot with hot pasta. Add parsley, cheese, lemon juice; toss to mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    I am constantly on the lookout for recipes with one or two servings and this one was wonderful. It is a great one-dish meal. I will be cooking this often since I can have two meals from it. - 11/14/11

    The amount of pasta seemed like a lot, so I added an extra bit of oil and lemon juice, and reserved a cup of the pasta liquid to get a decent amount of sauce. I also added a bit of red pepper flake. It was incredible. One of the better recipes I've found on here! - 4/4/13

    This was very good. I added a little extra lemon juice because I like the twang. It was tasty and nutritious. - 4/29/09
