Shrimp Zoodles for Two

Posted in : Meals, Pasta, Uncategorized on by : rereinke@yahoo.com Tags: , ,

I used a recipe from Skinnytaste.com and have made it a  few times and really like it. The Zoodles are fresh, very low calorie, and easy to prepare. I would recommend adding an extra zucchini for more bulk, the two just weren’t filling enough.
