We love shrimp scampi, but have decided to cut back where we can on heavy carbs. This is the perfect solution! I will be swapping out pasta for veggie noodles quite frequently now!

This turned out well. I added extra Parmesan cheese on top because we like it. Also, added some bacon because, you know why. Read More

Made as written and loved every bite! You can't go wrong with this one. I think the only one thing the recipe isn't clear on is the shrimp. It doesn't specify to use raw or cooked. Use raw. This is a great recipe! Sprinkle some shredded parm on the top for an extra punch of flavor. Read More

It was my first time making zucchini like spaghetti and I didn't know if I'd like it. But it was delicious. I didn't have a lemon so I used a lime. Substituted white onion for the shallot. And used 4 cloves of garlic. I also reduced the butter by half. Like another reviewer suggested, I added fresh chopped tomato toward the end of cooking the zucchini. This along with the green on the zucchini made a very colorful dish. I sprinkled the parmesan on individual servings to reduce the amount needed. My husband liked it with a light touch of cayenne. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I tried using a different recipe using zucchini noodles and shrimp and my family did not like it so I was skeptical to try this recipe. I reluctantly made it tonight and it was a success! We found it to be flavorful and delicous. I added some chopped tomatoes towards the end of cooking time for extra color and taste and topped each serving with some fresh shaved Parmesan. I will definitely keep this recipe and use it again. Read More

I use 2 boxes of Trader Joe's frozen zucchini noodles to make it easier just ensure you drain and fully remove all water/moisture. I also keep cooking white wine available. I make this meal 1-2 times a month. My husband loves it and it has become one of our favorites! Read More

Excellent recipe. My daughter always wants me to make linguine and shrimp when visiting. This time made this zoodles dish instead. She liked it "just as much!" With a nod to another similar recipe, added 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes when sautéing garlic. Adds just a "little kick" to the dish Don't go overboard on the garlic. OK the first day, but if you use a LOT of garlic, then re-heat the next day, you will stand alone in a crowd! No one will want to be near you! I usually go a little heavier on the lemon juice.

Followed the recipe exactly except used salted butter and cooked, frozen shrimp that had been thawed. Threw the shrimp in when the noodles were about 2/3 of the way done. Hubby said it was one of the best meals he's ever eaten. Love it when a recipe doesn't require any tweaks. Thanks for sharing it! Read More
