Pesto Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles is a quick and healthy meal that's packed with flavor from a healthy homemade basil pesto but good for you since it uses zucchini noodles instead of traditional pasta. Perfect for a low carb, keto, or Weight Watchers diet.
Pesto is one of those dishes that seems healthy when you first think about it but is usually packed with so much oil and cheese that is quickly becomes a calorie bomb. In fact, most pesto has about 80 calories and 8 grams of fat for just one tablespoon. I don't know about you, but that's quite a lot considering you need more than one tablespoon for most recipes.
To combat that, I have been making my own pesto for years now. It uses all the same ingredients just in different proportions to make it much healthier. Trust me, you wont' miss all the extra oil. I use it all the time with pasta, spaghetti squash, chicken, and my absolute favorite, shrimp. I just love the combination of pesto and shrimp - so good.
With that in mind, I created this simple dish using this homemade pesto, zucchini noodles, and quickly sauteed shrimp. It's ready in less than 20 minutes and tastes amazing. Full of pesto flavor, sweet shrimp, and plenty of zucchini noodles.
