Backyard Garden + Recipe: Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini and Tomato Pasta
by Katie Goodman

Shrimpscampi Dish
This being my first year growing a vegetable garden, I didn’t want to begin the adventure with a lot that would be considered “advanced gardening.” I knew it would be a little bit of an investment up front — we had our side gate moved to accommodate the garden and had to add a lot of organic dirt and compost to the mix. After spending all that money, I wanted at least a couple of things that would be easy to grow.


Scampi Zucchini Garden
Zucchini is a great starter vegetable for someone who’s new to gardening. It’s easy to grow and produces a lot — both of which give the newbie gardener lots of confidence. But then, there is often the problem of what to do with all the zucchini!
Zucchini pairs well with tomatoes (both of which I’m growing in my garden with great success), and both go great with pasta, but there are lots of other zucchini options, and some are not quite so obvious.
The week I made this dish I had 8 good-sized zucchini in my fridge that were really in need of being used up. If you find yourself with a “zucchini problem” like I did, you may want to check out some of the recipes listed below, in addition to this delicious Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini and Tomato Pasta.

The effect gardening has on my cooking is amazing: I’m focusing on what’s in season, planning my meals around what’s available, and truly appreciating fresh produce. I first created this dish on a hectic night just a day after coming home from my first vacation alone, with virtually nothing (save zucchini) in the fridge. But I had fresh tomatoes growing and available in my garden, and a delicious dinner made it to the table right on time.

Ingredients

Serves 2
2 large handfuls of frozen shelled and deveined shrimp
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1/3 cup white wine
2 Tbsp lemon juice

4 handfuls of tomatoes mixture of yellow pear and grape
Salt and pepper to taste
