  • Ingredients:
  • 12oz bag of cooked, de-veined, talk off shrimp
  • 2 lemons
  • 1-2 small or medium zucchini 
  • 1 1lb package linguine pasta
  • 2 pints of grape tomatoes
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • (optional jarred Alfredo sauce and fresh chopped basil) 

 

  • Instructions:
  • Spiralize zucchini and set aside
  • Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a boil with salt and add half the package of linguine. Cook until aldente and drain.
  • While pasta is cooking halve all the grape tomatoes and set aside.
  • Thaw the entire package of shrimp in warm water, rinse thoroughly, and dry.
  • Mince garlic cloves
  • In a medium sauce pan on medium/high heat add 2tbs of oil. Add shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and cook until slightly browned. Add all the tomatoes, the juice of 2 lemons, and garlic. Reduce heat to medium/medium-low and cook until all tomatoes have softened and given up their juice. 
  • Once sauce is done add spiralized zucchini to pasta, add sauce with shrimp and stir to combine. The zucchini noodles will soften with the hot sauce and shrimp. If desired you can add fresh chopped basil to the top. If you're wanting something more rich and a little less "healthy" you can add 1/3 cup of the jarred alfredo sauce or enough for your taste. 

This recipe is great because you get tons of protein from the shrimp, carbs from the linguine and a good amount of veggies from the zucchini noodles! This one is sure to be a crowd pleaser ever for the kiddos! Comment if you have any questions.
