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!

  1. This looks amazing! Been looking forward to it since I saw it on your IG stories!
  2. I made this last week & it was fantastic!
  3. What could you substitute the breadcrumbs with to make it low carb?
  4. Would it work with frozen shrimp? Or should the shrimp be thawed first?
    • Hi Carol! Using frozen shrimp would change the cooking time and would be too long for the zucchini noodles, so we would recommend using thawed shrimp.
  5. I have to try this recipe....looks amazing! Do you recommend heating leftovers or would be better to eat cold? I just find it can be tricky to not get rubbery shrimp when re-heating
    • Reheating may be tricky with the zucchini noodles as well! Try eating it cold and see how it is, or reheat back in the oven covered!
  6. What other veg substitution will be good to replace zucchini?
