Late Summer Harvest Pasta


Dad and I came up with this while he was visiting this weekend. It is delicious! We decided on the title because the veggies in it are all in season right now. In fact, the zucchini, tomatoes, and thyme are all from the shared garden in my apartment complex and we picked them right before cooking this.

Late Summer Harvest Pasta

1 lb. of pasta

For sauce:

While pasta is cooking:
1. Sauté onions and garlic in a frying pan.
2. Add in tomatoes, zucchini, corn kernels, thyme, pepper. Cook over low heat until almost done.
3. Add shrimp and salt and simmer for a few more minutes until everything is cooked.
