Shrimp Pasta Salad

Everything this week is kind of up in the air so I am not posting a menu plan. We might be going out of town Wednesday morning and coming back late Thursday but we might not, won't know until Tuesday night. I do know I am preparing a meal for the group tonight but one of the group members has started a strict diet for the next few weeks. We checked out what was on that diet and I think we are going to cook from those guidelines on group nights. We may all be a little healthier in a few weeks! Last night I cooked dinner for just John and I. Here is what I threw together:

1 7.5 oz box bacon ranch pasta mix
1 4 oz can shrimp, drained
1 zucchini, chopped
salt and pepper
olive oil
2 Tbsp lime juice

Remove the pasta from the box and prepare according to instructions on package. Meanwhile, in small skillet heat one Tbsp olive oil. Add zucchini and saute for about two minutes.
Stir in shrimp and season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue cooking for an additional two to three minutes. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine the seasoning from the pasta mix, 1/4 cup of olive oil and two Tbsp of lime juice. Set aside. When pasta is done, drain.
Add the seasoning mix to the pasta and mix well. Stir in the shrimp and zucchini.
Divide onto plates and top with the cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
