Tonight’s dinner was something different and super yummy! Shrimp Pesto Linguine Zoodle Bowl 🤤 Not only is this a one pot stop, but we’re also putting a healthy twist on it.
Let’s get to the details 😋
🥖6oz 100% whole wheat linguine or fettuccine
🥖1 medium to large zucchini
🥖3 cups broccoli florets (about 7oz)
🥖1/4 cup basil pesto (you can use homemade if you’d like, less sodium that way)
🥖2 tbsp Dijon mustard
🥖1/2 lemon juice (about 1 tbsp)
🥖1 pound medium shrimp
🥖 Bring water to boil in a Dutch oven over medium head. Add pasta and cook for 6 minutes. Add broccoli to pasta and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes. Cool pasta until al dente and broccoli is tender.
🥖Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water and set aside. Drain the pasta and broccoli.
🥖Return the pasta and broccoli to Dutch oven; reduce heat to low. Stir in pesto, mustard, and lemon juice. Add shrimp. Stirring often until shrimp are cooked to your liking. If your noodles are dry, and 1 tablespoon at a time for creaminess.
🥖If making zoodles begin cooking the zoodles right when you put the shrimp in the noodle combo. Begin by heating up 1 tbsp avocado oil in pan. Add zoodles to pan and cook for 8-12 minutes until warm.
🥖Once done place some zoodles on the bottom of your bowl, next add broccoli and shrimp combo together. Mix together and enjoy!
**Optional: add some shredded Parmesan cheese.
**Looking to make this a lower carb meal skip the noodles and just use zoodles!
