The memories of this shrimp salad stayed with me long after I first tasted it. I think that part of the reason is that it was the first time I was introduced to Papa Vince Busiate Pasta. I am not a pasta lover but I love to eat this artisan crafted pasta made with stone ground grain and imported from Sicily. It's not your average box from the grocery store and it makes the perfect dinner whether it's served hot or cold.
Italians don't eat so much pasta salad but here in coastal Alabama this dish is perfect for a light lunch and is a definite crowd pleaser at a pot luck! And it's another excuse to eat some more shrimp! In this recipe it's perfectly paired with the delicate flavor of Papa Vince lemon olive oil. I enjoyed it so much, I just had to learn how to make it myself and you should do the same!
Beautiful colors and inviting flavors will make this hearty side dish a keeper in your recipe box.
This is an easy side dish that makes good use of summer squash and fresh bell peppers.
