This is a fantastic seafood dish for any occasion and simple to throw together in a pinch!  Our family is big on seafood, so anything we can turn into a casserole is always a handy recipe.  Shrimp and zucchini calamarata mingled perfect flavors and everyone loved this one!

I was a little surprised that my children raved about this dinner.  They are so picky, but the rich cheesy flavors tuned them right in.  The calamarata pasta is a nice blend with sturdy shells that enhance the overall taste of the entire casserole. We were very pleased with how all of the flavors mingled together and created a great meal.

If you have a hard time locating the calamarata noodles in your grocery, try this! These pasta noodles are ring shaped or “squid” shaped, thick rings that are extremely hearty.  They are perfect for stand alone casseroles providing a very satisfying taste and fullness.  We were actually quite surprised to see them at our local grocery store and had to give them a shot in our kitchen.  Finding them to be pleasing, we will surely have to make this dish again soon!  We hope you enjoy this one, happy cooking to everyone!!!
