Zucchini Pasta with Saute Shrimp
You will feel so good about yourself after eating these zucchini pasta with sautés shrimp. We enjoy our pasta bowl, but with about 22 grams of carbohydrates in one serving, we don’t always want to go for it! Well, you can cut those carbs with this easy to make zucchini pasta. Sauter the noodles with shrimps and serve them with homemade fresh tomatoes sauce and you might just forget about your real pasta bowl… 😉 just for a moment! Zucchini is a great pasta substitute as it does not really have a taste to itself. It takes any flavor you gives to it. In this recipe, I use a spiralizer, veggie bullet, to make the zucchini noodle, which you can get at the store or use any vegetable spiralizer you have. You can also cut the zucchini into short lengths like rigatoni or macaroni pasta if you don’t have a spiralizer and still want to make your own zucchini pasta at home. Ready in: 30 min Serving: 4


  • 6 medium zucchini, spiralized or short cut
  • 20 colossal shrimps, peeled and deveined
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 fresh medium tomatoes, puréed
  • 1 medium sweet onion, puréed
  • 4 Tbsp vegetable oil (for tomato sauce)
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil (for shrimps and noodles)

  • garlic powder
  • salt

  14. Sauter noodles for 2 min, stirring
  15. Pour in a pasta bowl and serve with the tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese for an ultimate pasta flavor!
