Dinner Date with Food52: Alfresco Dining Inspiration

A pasta fix for carbophobes


For the most part, we’re convinced that delicious-looking pasta dishes (see: pictured left) are going to ruin our lives.

Unless they’re actually pasta-free. (See: pictured left.)

This week, our spot at Food52’s dinner table is a lean, green take on classic summer fare: spicy grilled shrimp and creamy, herb-tossed zuccaghetti (zucchini masquerading as spaghetti) that pair perfectly with a balmy night spent not giving your treadmill the stink eye.

See? Things are looking even better.
