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.

Instructions

  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.

  7. Toss together the zucchini noodles, shrimp, vegetables, sauce, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
