Shrimp with spicy red sauce over zoodles!

In trying to keep with my “lower” carb diet, I’ve been playing around with my “zoodler” more often.  Here’s the one I have, click here. Tonight’s dish was a hit!


1 large zucchini, zoodled

1 small onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 bag of pre-cooked large shrimp, thawed (remove tails)

1 jar of red sauce, use your favorite!

Basil, oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper

1/3 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese

Here’s what you’ll do:

Heat 2 tablespoons of EVOO in a non stick skillet, add your garlic, onions and red pepper flakes and sauté until the onions are translucent, being careful not to burn the garlic; 3-4 minutes.  Add in the jar of sauce, herbs and salt and pepper and let simmer for 25 minutes.  In the last five minutes add in your shrimp to heat through, and get a second sauté pan heated on medium high heat with 1 tablespoon of EVOO.  Next, add in your zucchini, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until al dente, making sure the zoodles aren’t mushy!
