Penne with Shrimp and Zucchini in Tomato Vodka Sauce

Penne with Shrimp and Zucchini in Tomato Vodka Sauce
adapted from Colleen's Kitchen

2 servings

1 tbsp butter/margarine
1 tsp olive oil
8 oz large shrimp, peeled & deveined (I used the already cooked frozen kind)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 medium zucchini, quartered vertically and cut into slices (about 1/4-1/2" thick)
14/15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
2 tbsp vodka
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 lb penne pasta
parmesan cheese

1- Start water to boil for the pasta.
2- While the water is coming to a boil, melt butter with the olive oil. Add the shrimp, onion, garlic, and zucchini and saute until the onions are transparent.
3- Add the tomatoes and cook until almost no liquid remains in the skillet- stir frequently so that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.
4- If your mixture is boiling, remove the pan from the heat and add the milk and vodka. Stir to combine and then replace onto the heat & bring back to a boil. Let the mixture thicken into a sauce consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
5- Combine the sauce with the penne. Top with parmesan cheese and parsley.

Hey! I really appreciate your comment on the last post. Do you have any specific questions? If you guys are re-doing all your templates and brochures, it would be easy on you to create one awesome template, and then just apply it to the rest by simply changing the text. That way they will all look uniform and consistent throughout. Having a uniform look across the board is a must when it comes to your identity and your client's recognition of it! Rebranding is really tough- especially when you are doing it for yourself or the company you work for. Good luck!
