It’s so great when there is a zucchini recipe that can make a favorite pasta recipe into something that’s thats healthy and quick and easy to make.
I couldn’t wait to make my first batch of zoodles so I bought a hand held one to try it out. For less than $20 bucks I was on my way to making oodles of zoodles and any other vegetable noodles I can think of.
Zoodle Shrimp Scampi seemed like the perfect recipe to get started on making this light and fresh dish all summer long or any time your want to cut down on those carbs. Leave off the shrimp for a side dish or add a vegetarian protein.
This recipe is for 2 but can easily be doubled for more.
