Pesto, Shrimp and Zoodles! Oh My! #SundaySupper

This is my favorite season of the year! The flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing and I have tomato plants happily growing in my garden! It’s a beautiful thing!

Shrimp and Zoodles

Do you know what else I love about Spring? We start eating lighter. Don’t get me wrong. I love comfort food. Hearty casseroles and thick, rich soups are a staple in our house during the winter. (Or at least what passes for “Winter” here in Southern California!) For some reason though, around this time of year, my body starts craving fresh veggies and simpler dishes. And, really, there is nothing simpler than this dish!

Shrimp and Zoodles

Pesto, Shrimp and Zoodles, toss in a few grape tomatoes and you’re done. That’s it! Four simple ingredients and one fantastic dish to welcome in Spring!

If you’re not familiar with Zoodles, basically, it’s Zuchinni or any kind of squash, spiralized into noodles. Pretty cool, huh? They make fancy spiralizers (Mothers Day is coming up! Great gift idea for Mom, kids!) or you can use a little hand-held model.

I love them! My husband however, is not a fan. So, I make them for lunches during the week! They’re healthy and easy to make, plus one small zucchini is more than enough for several meals.

If you don’t want to add the shrimp, toss this with a few more veggies and it’s a beautiful vegetarian meal! Ahhh spring veggies! There is nothing better!

A delicious way to welcome Spring! A light and simple spiralized zucchini salad with shrimp and your favorite pesto sauce!

  • 1/2 small zucchini - spiralized
  • 1/2 small yellow squash - spiralized
  • 12 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite Pesto Sauce
  • 1 dozen extra-large Shrimp (16-20's)

In a medium skillet, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, cook shrimp over medium flame for 2 minutes per side.

  1. I had nearly the exact same dish for last night’s dinner!! I revamped one of my favorite pasta dishes–Ina Garten’s Lemon Pasta & Shrimp–using zucchini noodles. And by the way, I love, love, love my spiralizer. Check out the one created by Ali at Inspiralized. She creates amazing recipes. My hubby also isn’t fond of spiralized zuchhini. What’s up with these men?!
