Shrimp Scampi over Zucchini Noodles

Shrimp Scampi Zucchini Noodles

Our shrimp scampi recipe is sauteed in grass-fed butter and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Typically scampi recipes are loaded in fat and calories, but we've slimmed this restaurant favorite by switching our carb-heavy pasta with zucchini noodles. Zucchini noodles are so easy to make, all you need is spiralizer. Zucchini noodles hold up well to heat, have a great texture, all while allowing you to have a plate full of pasta without all those carbs!
