Happy Memorial Day!
And I guess 15 Minute Spicy Shrimp with Pesto Noodles Day, too!
Today I’m doing the unthinkable and cutting myself off from my usual habit of writing every word known to man in one single post. I KNOW. I literally woke up this morning and wrote, like, 8 paragraphs of my usual blabber, like I normally do. But then I read it, and to be honest, it just felt weird and not right to talk about regular life stuff in light of the seriousness of this holiday. So I deleted it. And we’re going short and sweet instead, hopefully to encourage us to spend some time today both honoring the people who have served our country, and making some Spicy Shrimp with Pesto Noodles for the ones we love.
Okay. So this meal comes together in a snap and the flavor is rockin. The shrimp cook so fast – something I always love about shrimp! – and those spicy little guys are piled high atop a bed of raw zucchini noodles that are coated with the BEST ever pesto that’s not actually pesto (it’s all plant-based and it’s SO addicting). I know it sounds weird with the raw zucchini thing, but please. You must try before judging the zoodles fad. I LOVE IT, other than the name zoodles. Bleh.
Plus this recipe will give you more of that healthy green pesto than what you need for the zucchini noodles, which you will thank me for later, because it goes with anything and everything much like our favorite Magic Green Sauce.
It’s light, flavorful, colorful, nutritious, and full of flavor.
IT WANTS YOU.
