If you love shrimp scampi, you’re going to love this casserole style scampi even more! Everything comes together in one casserole dish and everything cooks together at the same time for easy prep, easy cooking, and easy cleanup!

Baked Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Shrimp scampi is a Mediterranean pasta dish that consists lots of zesty lemon, pasta, sometimes breadcrumbs, parsley, and of course, shrimp. I’ve combined all of these classic flavors into this baked casserole version and it’s easy to serve (just make sure you trim up your zucchini noodles first, so that when you go to serve a portion, you’re not jump roping your ‘pasta’!)

You don’t need to worry about watery, soggy zoodles here, because you want some moisture in this casserole dish, to mix with the parsley, breadcrumbs, and lemon for a pasta-like sauce! For a little variation, try adding some cooked bacon to this casserole dish for salty flavor!

  • So so so good! Made this last night and it kept very well for leftovers. I will definitely make this over and over
    • So happy to hear!
  • Love, love, love this! It's become part of our weekly routine. So easy to make! I love that it doesn't use a ton of dishes and also that it is so healthy. The first time I panicked and added a little butter, but it totally doesn't need it, and now we make it exactly as written! Delicious! Make it tonight, you won't regret it!
  • My inspiralizer doesn't work at all well. If I peel the zuchinni first it just shoots it out onto the floor. Other Vegetables like sweet potato are impossible to make sweet potato fries. Very sorry I made this purchase.
