Zucchini Noodle Shrimp Pesto
Spiralizing zucchini noodles is so much fun!
Whole grain pasta can be a great source of healthy whole grains but the calories can add up per serving. Combining the zucchini noodles with whole grain pasta decreases the caloric density of this entrée yet you still feel like you've had pasta!
Don't have a spiralizer? Get one! This is my favorite. And when you get it you can try some of my other spiralizer recipes here and here and here.
2 cups any shape whole grain pasta
2 spiraled zucchini, using the thick noodle setting
2 cups shrimp, thawed and shelled
6 Tbsps. Pesto
Red pepper flakes to taste
Cook the pasta according to package instructions and drain.
Put the spiralized zucchini in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until done. You do not need to cover the bowl. Drain any liquid.
Sauté the shrimp in a little olive oil. Put the pasta into a bowl with the cooked zucchini spirals. Add the pesto and shrimp and using tongs, toss. Top with a little red pepper flakes.
This makes 3 servings.
