Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

You can replace the pasta in your

shrimp scampi with healthy zucchini noodles.

I found this spiralizer at

Target last year. You can also use

a mandoline slicer.

It easily turns squash, potatoes, carrots

etc. into thin spaghetti-like strands.

Prep 2 zucchini.

 Saute the garlic in hot oil and butter in a large

skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. 

Add a pinch of red pepper flakes.

 Add the shrimp and saute for 3 minutes until cooked.

Season with salt and pepper. 

Use a slotted spoon to remove the shrimp from 

the pan. Stir in the wine and lemon juice. Simmer

1 minute then add the zucchini.

 Toss the zucchini and cook for 2 minutes.

Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine.

Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

 Serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
