Ingredients:

  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined (tail on okay) (I buy 21/25’s)
  • 1.5 c. fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1 c. olive oil
  • 1 c. walnuts
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 c. white wine vinegar
  • 2 zucchini, spiralized

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350’
  2. Place the zucchini noodles in a casserole dish and top with shrimp.
  3. Place the 1.5 c. basil leaves in a food processor with 1 c. olive oil, 1 c. walnuts, 1 tsp salt, 4 cloves garlic, and 1/4 c. white wine vinegar.
  4. Pulse to combine into a paste.
  5. Pour pesto over the shrimp and zucchini.
  6. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until shrimp is cooked (will depend on size of your shrimp).

Tips:

  • We use a spiralizer like this one ( http://amzn.to/2mkiQTb ) to cut our zucchini into noodles. If you don’t have one, either cut the zucchini into julienne strips or grate the zucchini on a box grater.
  • Don’t leave the olive oil behind when you dip our your zucchini pasta. That’s good fat to help keep you full.
  • We use a food processor like this one: http://amzn.to/2mfm1vD
