Have you tried zucchini noodles?

I was looking for bean sprouts in the market the other day and stumbled upon these handy veggie noodles. I decided to give them a try on a whim. Honestly, I love zucchini. Me saying they're great is biased. But, if you're trying to reduce carbs or up your vegetable game, give them a try.

I didn't know what to do with them at first as the packaging said do not cook more than 4 minutes. I like quick and easy meals but 4 minutes is a little too quick. Insert shrimp. It was the only (fast cooking) protein that came to mind. I paired the noodles with shrimp and cherry tomatoes for a basic scampi vibe. Dinner was ready in 15 minutes! Seriously!

Here you go:


Zucchini Noodles (got mine from Albertsons)

3 minced garlic cloves

1 1/2 pounds of precooked shrimp

1 cup of cherry tomatoes (halved)

1 tbsp of butter

1/2 lemon (juice)

1/2 tbsp Knorr (Chicken Bouillon)


Salt & Pepper to taste



1. Rinse and dry shrimp. Season with garlic salt (or salt) and pepper to taste.

Remember we're adding Knorr too.

2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat.

3. Add shrimp. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.

4. Add minced garlic. Sauté for 1 minute.

5. Add cherry tomatoes. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.

6. Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan. Stir/mix consistently until butter is completely melted (approximately 2 minutes).

7. Add zucchini noddles. Sauté for 2 minutes. Add Knorr. Continue to sauté for an additional minute. Add lemon juice, stir and cook for another minute or two (tops).

I really enjoyed how quick and easy this meal was. My two cents: take the store help when you need it! Enjoy!
