Easy Shrimp Alfredo with Zucchini Noodles

Happy Monday people! I haven’t shared any food posts lately so I thought I would let you in on one of my recent obsessions: zucchini noodles!

We try to eat pretty low carb around here so pasta isn’t typically on our menu. I’ve never been a huge pasta eater but I find myself craving it every now and then, probably because I know I can’t have it. Isn’t that the way it works?

I was so excited when I finally got my hands on this little contraption. It’s a vegetable spiral slicer. I’d heard about making zucchini noodles but honestly I’ve been too busy or forgetful to pick one up.

The one I bought is call the Veggetti (insert high school aged snicker here) but there are several different options. I found mine at Target and you can also find them on Amazon and most of them are under $15.


All you do is slice the zucchini, throw them in a pan with a little olive oil and saute to your desired tenderness.


For an easy weeknight meal we like to just use a jar of alfredo sauce, usually Bertoli, but I love this recipe for a white wine cream sauce. I usually add a carton of mushrooms too!

I also saute the the shrimp in a little olive oil, salt and pepper.

This is a great, hearty meal without all the carbs of pasta. Honestly I like these noodles better than pasta noodles, believe it or not, and it doesn’t feel quite as heavy. My son loves it too but I’m lucky that he’s not a picky eater AT ALL.

I can’t wait to play around with more recipes. I’m going to try grilled chicken or scallops next and maybe squash for the noodles!
