Sesame Soba Noodles with Shrimp

I love the Pioneer Woman’s blog. She takes tons of photos and walks her readers through each step of a recipe. And when I saw her post on sesame noodles, I knew I had to make them. I had every single ingredient in my pantry and fridge. They were calling out to me. I did make some adjustments, though. Her recipes usually call for too much oil or butter or sugar. I prefer lighter cooking. I also don’t like dishes that are just pasta so I took her advice to add veggies and shrimp. I had soba noodles in the pantry which is an Asian buckwheat noodle. You can use any kind of noodle you have or go to the store and try something new!

Lemon Zucchini Pasta

Summer’s coming to a close and it makes me really sad. I love summer and this pasta recipe is my way of extending the season. The lemon, basil, zucchini, and beans really brighten up the flavors in this pasta dish.

We actually used brown rice pasta, making this a gluten-free recipe. You can use whatever pasta you have available.
