Shrimp scampi in 20 minutes? Yes, please! Fresh shrimp, lemon, parsley, garlic and vegetable “noodles” make for a quick and vibrant spring meal.
Recreating your favorite pasta dish with squash or zucchini “noodles” is super easy. You either need a vegetable slicer or a julienne peeler to create “noodles” from the squash or zucchini. In most of my recipes, I salt the squash and let it sit for a while to draw out any bitterness, but for this dish I found it was best to add the noodles at the very end of cooking, toss until just hot and then serve immediately. This way, the noodles are still a bit crispy and the flavor is more fresh. Squash contains a lot of moisture, so the longer it sits or cooks, the more moisture that will come out. This is why it’s imperative to serve this dish immediately. Enjoy!
