Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 1 tbsp Parmigiano cheese grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the oil to a frying pan over medium heat. Saute the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side, until no longer translucent. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Spiralize the zucchini and add it to the frying pan.
  • Add the pesto and toss to coat.
  • Heat the pesto zoodles for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the heat and divide the zoodles onto plates. Sprinkle with the grated cheese, salt and pepper and serve.

Notes

  • You can use store-bought zoodles, or any other type of vegetables that is easy to spiralize, like carrots or celeriac.
  • You can leave out the shrimp, or replace it with any other type of protein, like chicken, sausage or tofu.
  • You can microwave the pesto zoodles rather than cooking them in the frying pan. It takes just one minute on high, stopping at 30 seconds to stir.
