Inspiralized started out of a pure passion for eating healthy and helping others. When Ali Maffucci, discovered the spiralizer, she quickly learned how easily it could be used to make creative, delicious and nutritious meals
the easiest SHRIMP FRA DIAVOLO with ZUCCHINI NOODLES is up on the blog and ready for you to make! 🦐 🍝 I'm also sharing the recipe in this post, for those of you who prefer that 🙏🏼
there's a secret to this quick & easy fra diavolo: crushed tomatoes with basil added! 🍅 it's my lazy way of making sauce when it's not summertime and fresh basil is overpriced and not as fragrant anyway! the sauce is spiced up with red pepper flakes and it's served over zucchini noodles for a light but robust meal that's great for an intimate night in - with yourself or your partner! 🔥
swipe to the left for what you all came here for: lu's review! 👨🏽 and I hate to say it, but he's right... it's been a while since I've shared a good 'ole #zoodle recipe! do you all want more spiralized zucchini recipes?? 👇🏼👇🏼
SHRIMP FRA DIAVOLO with ZOODLES
~ 4 medium zucchinis, spiralized into spaghetti noodles (Blade D on the Inspiralizer)
~ 1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, shelled, cleaned
~ salt and pepper
~ 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
~ ¼ cup diced onions
~ 2 garlic cloves, minced
~ ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or closer to ½ teaspoon, if you like a spicy sauce)
~ 1 14.5-ounce can crushed tomatoes with basil
~ ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
Season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
Heat half of the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-3 minutes or until shrimp is C-shaped and opaque. Using tongs, set aside in a bowl. Add the zucchini noodles into the skillet and toss until al dente, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, set aside in a colander in the sink to drain.
Carefully wipe down the skillet and immediately add the remaining oil to the skillet and then the onions, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and season with oregano, salt, pepper, and stir well. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Add the shrimp and any juices and cook for another minute for the flavors to meld. Taste and season with salt, if needed. Serve with zoodles!...

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity...
a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬
in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did!
now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉
I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!...
