A warm bowl of pasta on a cold night; is there anything better? Answer: A million dollars, a basket of puppies, a bright rainbow, a gentle ocean breeze, a walk in the park, your favorite team winning, your favorite team winning the (insert the biggest game here), your children being born, weddings, Christmas trees, kittens tangled in string, flowers, two million dollars… ok, ok, ok. How about two bowls of pasta on a cold night, which this meal provides? We'll take it. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |

Cook the Pasta
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes.
Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.
While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim zucchini ends, cut lengthwise, and slice into ½" half-moons.
Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Pat shrimp dry, and season all over with a pinch of pepper.
Cook the Shrimp
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add shrimp to hot pan and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.
Remove shrimp to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium-high heat. Add 4 tsp. olive oil, tomato, and zucchini to hot pan. Stir occasionally until zucchini starts to brown, 2-3 minutes.
Add flour, ¾ cup reserved pasta cooking water, garlic salt, mirepoix base, and cream cheese. Stir until cream cheese begins to melt and flour is incorporated, 1-2 minutes.
Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Stir pasta, shrimp, a pinch of salt, 2 tsp. lemon juice, and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish) into hot pan until combined and warmed through.
If sauce is too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from burner.
