Summer Shrimp and Pasta Salad

Summer Shrimp and Pasta Salad

  • One pound of shrimp, cooked with lemon and garlic seasoning and salt and pepper
  • One pound of short pasta, spirals, fusilli, small shells or elbows, multi-color pasta or vegetable pasta looks good in this dish, cook pasta and let cool a few minutes
  • Two yellow squash sliced very thin
  • One package of part skim mozzarella cheese cut into half inch cubes
  • Three to four cups or handfuls of baby spinach
  • One quart or package of grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • Olives sliced in half if you like olives
  • Two thinly sliced pickled banana peppers if you want some heat

Mix everything together with 1/3 cup olive oil or lite Italian dressing and 1/4  cup of lemon juice, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning (serving size is 2 cups). Cover and refrigerate for half an hour before serving. This makes a lot of servings so use a big dish to mix in and have some friends to serve to or cut the recipe in half.
