Recipe

This is one of my favorite lower carb pasta dishes because it combines three things I really love - zucchini noodles, creamy cheesy sauce, and shrimp. There's also a ton of veggies in the dish - asparagus, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and cauliflower - so it's a dish you can feel really good about. If you don't like shrimp, this dish works great with chicken or chicken sausages as well.

Directions

  1. Prepare the zucchini noodles using a spiralizer, mandolin, or vegetable peeler.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
  3. Add the asparagus, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, cauliflower, and garlic. Cook for 6-8 minutes until tender. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add the shrimp and cook for 3-6 minutes until pink and opaque. Set aside.
  5. Meanwhile in a small pan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute until lightly browned. Whisk in the milk and cook until thick and bubbling. For lower carb, melt the butter and then add the milk. Bring to a simmer and add the arrowroot and continue cooking until it thickens.
  6. Stir in the cheese until it melts completely.
  7. Toss together the zucchini noodles, shrimp, vegetables, sauce, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
