Pasta Primavera With Shrimp And Scallops

Pasta Primavera is a light, fresh, and simple pasta dinner that highlights fresh vegetables. This is one of my favorite summer dishes since I like to use zucchini and heirloom tomatoes. I have made various forms of this recipe, depending on what vegetables are in season, but I have come to conclusion that you can use this exact recipe with some tweaks to what veggies you use.
