Meal Mondays: Shrimp Zoodles Pesto

Shrimp Zoodles Pesto

Hey Femme Fitale Family!!!  I am super duper excited about sharing this recipe with you all.  I was inspired to make this recipe when I found a one-pot zucchini pasta recipe on the “Making Thyme For Health” blog site.  It looked so good and I had some ideas of how to make it my own so I did.  I shared it on Instagram and Facebook and the crowd went wild asking for the recipe so here it is and I hope you enjoy it.  If you make it hit me up on Instagram by tagging me @FemmeFitaleFitClub

I won a Paderno Spiralizer in a giveaway by Urban Naturale.  To date it is THE best prize I ever won in a giveway.  Check her out at http://urbannaturale.com/ as she always hosts fun giveaways.

The Shrimp Zoodles Pesto recipe is easy, quick, gluten-free and no carb.

    This sounds great!! I just made shrimp scampi with zucchini noodles recently, so I love the idea of a change of pace with a pesto version. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
