Peanut Sauced Shrimp and Veggie Pitas Recipe

I'm always looking for quick and easy weeknight recipes to try out. Even better, if they don't require alot of cooking, especially on hot summer days. I picked up the Cooking Light: Crave! Cookbook from my local library a couple weeks ago and found this recipe. The only thing I changed was using cooked shrimp instead of cooked chicken, only because I had the shrimp on hand. This cookbook was full of fun and easy recipes. There are tons of burger, pizza and sandwich recipes that are on the healthier side. I would definitely recommend this cookbook for some new recipe ideas!

This recipe is so easy, fresh and delicious! Perfect for a summer lunch or dinner! I had my sister and her boyfriend over for dinner and we all loved this recipe. I can't wait to try it with chicken next time! Enjoy!!
