Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini and Tomato Pasta

Katie Goodman, zucchini recipe, shrimp scampi I created this recipe for Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini and Tomato Pasta last year during the summer gardening season as a way to deal with my excess zucchini problem. I was growing one plant and my neighbor grew several. I love zucchini, but by August the supply so outweighs the demand. Some blossoms seem to transform into baseball bat sized zucchini overnight. Between the two of us, there was a definite zucchini problem.
