When julienned on a mandoline, lightly sauteéd summer squash does a great job of imitating pasta, making a light, healthy, gluten-free dish when tossed in olive oil with shrimp and asparagus.

Review Body: This was very simple to make and delicious. The only thing I did differently from the recipe is that I added the juice of one small lemon to the shrimp/asparagus. I will definitely make this again.
