Recipe

Scampi is a traditional sauce made of garlic, lemon, white wine, parsley, and usually some butter. Normally it is served with shrimp or chicken and served over pasta. However today we are going to lighten things up by eliminating the butter and adding lots of fresh veggies. I love the dish with a combination of broccoli, zucchini, and summer squash but any veggies will work.
