I love a good spiralized veggie dish once the weather starts getting warmer. A few of my favorites are Shrimp Zoodles Parmesan, Quick Spiralized Zucchini and Grape Tomatoes, and Shrimp Scampi Zoodles.

Today it’s finally starting to feel like Spring! Before you know it, summer will be here and you know what that means…. bathing suit season! I’ve been diligent about working out a few times a week, but you know what they say – great abs start in the kitchen and this so true so now that winter is over, I’ve been cutting back on my carbs (not eliminating, don’t worry!) and really making my calories count.

In this dish, rather than using pasta, I swapped it for zucchini noodles. My Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer is my all time FAVORITE cooking gadget. It’s the easiest way to make zucchini noodles, sweet potato spirals, carrot ribbons and more! Prior to owning one, I used my mandolin but it’s so much quicker and easier (and safer) with this fun gadget – you NEED one!!

  1. Am I missing an ingredient? When I add this recipe to WW, it comes to 2 points (blue), not the 6 points on your site. The only ingredient with points is the olive oil.

    It’s an excellent dish! I think the blue points are incorrect? I have it at 2 points! Thx
