Pasta with Grilled Zucchini

I had to use up the other half of my giant zucchini. I originally planned on making a smaller side dish of pasta to serve with grilled zucchini and shrimp...however, I wasn't too thrilled with how the shrimp turned out (though Paul liked them), so I made more pasta and kinda tossed some ingredients together and came up with this little dish...quite tasty if I do say so myself!Ingredients:
Sliced & grilled zucchini, cut into bite sized pieces
Angel hair pasta
3 tbs. butter
2 tbs. olive oil
4 cloves garlic - thinly sliced
1 shallot - finely diced
Lemon - zested and 1/2 juiced
Salt & Pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese to finish

Directions:
Cook pasta according to directions.

While pasta cooks, melt butter with olive oil in a pan. Add shallot and garlic, season with salt, pepper, lemon zest and the juice of 1/2 of one lemon. Cook over medium low heat until soft and just barely browning.

Remove the pasta when finished cooking and add to pan with the butter/garlic mixture. Add zucchini and toss all together so it's all coated equally.

Plate up and sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese.

Bon Appetit!!!

Great idea grilling the zucchini with pasta! The grill marks are beautiful :)

This is delicious especially with a good Romano Cheese to top it off. We also used a whole grain pasta, which provided a little fiber and protein, which made this quite a filling dinner. Thanks for the idea!
