Rceipe for basal garlic shrimp pasta


  1. 1/2 zucchini
  2. 1/2 yellow squash
  3. 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  4. 1 clove garlic
  5. 2 mushrooms, sliced
  6. 20 cooked and peeled shrimp
  7. 6 grape tomatoes
  8. 3 basil leaves
  9. Garlic powder, Salt


  1. First, you will need a vegetable spiralizer. Take half a zucchini and half of a yellow squash and run them through the spiralizer. Voila! This is your “pasta”.
  2. Next, in a pan, heat half a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Mince the clove of garlic and add to the olive oil.  Let simmer for a minute or two. Then add the shrimp, sprinkle on some salt and garlic powder, and let these brown in the olive oil and garlic.
  3. In another pan, heat half a tablespoon of olive oil and cook your mushrooms. I always add a little garlic powder to the mushrooms as well.
  4. Once those are cooked through, add your “pasta”. This only needs to cook for about two minutes or it gets very mushy. 
  5. Now, take your mushrooms and pasta and add it to your shrimp.
  6. Cut up 6 grape tomatoes and add the halves to the pasta mix.
  7. Stir it all together, let it warm for about a minute, and you’re DONE!
  8. I like to add fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon for extra flavor. Delicious meal in 20 minutes or less.
