CWYC

This pasta dish is both fresh and hearty! The fresh taste of summer from the zucchini and tomatoes contrasts nicely with the earthy saltiness of the anchovies.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together the anchovies and their oil with the red pepper flakes and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking up the anchovies as you stir. Once the garlic begins to sizzle, add the sliced zucchini, and cook until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the grape tomatoes, and continue cooking until the zucchini is tender, and the skins of the tomatoes begin to pop, 5 minutes more.
  3. Sprinkle the vegetable mixture with oregano and basil, then stir in shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turn pink and are no longer translucent. Pour over bucatini to serve.

I was bummed by this recipe. I made the vegetable/shrimp mixture while my pasta was boiling, and it smelled and tasted so yummy! Then I added a full pound of pasta, and it was way too much. I strongly recommend only using 8 oz of pasta. I love this idea, though!

I really liked this.... for both the flavor and the ease and speed of the preparation. I love onions and use them in pretty much everything, so I added about 1/3 cup of chopped onion (when I added the anchovy). I also used a can of fire-roasted tomatoes and used 8 oz of whole wheat thin spaghetti, as there would be way too much pasta if you add a whole box. I think I will add some fresh mushrooms next time as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was a delicious dish. I didn't have anchovies, so I in place of that salty item, I used chopped green olives. They played nicely with the flavors! I also used a can of diced tomatoes in place of the fresh and it worked out really well. Thanks!
