 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 โ€œpastaโ€.
  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 โ€œpastaโ€. 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 youโ€™re DONE!
  8. I like to add fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon for extra flavor. Delicious meal in 20 minutes or less.
