Spiralized Carrot Spaghetti with Shrimp and Shaved Asparagus

Today is National Garlic Day! To celebrate, I’m making a spiralized pasta dish, using Victoria Fine Foods’ Organic Toasted Garlic Sauce!

If you’ve made any of my recipes, you already know that I’m a garlic freak. As in, most of my recipes start with garlic. Blame my Italian grandparents, but I can’t get enough of it – and so it makes its way into most of my recipes.

Alongside this easy four-ingredient spiralized pasta (yes, four ingredients!), I’m also announcing my new year-long partnership with Victoria Fine Foods!

Before I get to the recipe, I want to introduce you to Victoria Fine Foods. If you don’t know of them already, they’re a company that makes jarred sauces and products that focus on fresh, real ingredients. Actually, their slogan is “ingredients come first”!

As the story goes,

“In 1929, an Italian family immigrated to Brooklyn, New York and started a business using fresh vegetables, premium ingredients, and a slow cooking process—made the way they would serve their own family.”

It’s a no-brainer that I would partner with a company such as this! I’ll be working with them for the next year, bringing you a new spiralized recipe once a month, incorporating their products. So, stock up – and follow along!

Plus, Victoria was the first major pasta sauce brand to put their ingredients on the FRONT of their label. For today’s recipe, I’ve used a sauce from their Organic line, specifically, the Toasted Garlic Sauce, but they have five varieties of Organic pasta sauces, including Organic Pomodoro, Organic Tomato Herb, Organic Arrabbiata, and Organic Garden Herb Marinara. All of these are certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project verified, and Gluten-Free!

Literally, I couldn’t make a sauce better myself – and to be honest, these days – I don’t have the time!

This recipe literally came together in 20 minutes, but if you’re not a speed-cooker like me (my mother calls me a Tasmanian Devil in the kitchen, ha!), it will take you no more than 30 minutes! It has four simple ingredients: this pasta sauce, asparagus, carrots, and shrimp!

The shrimp is simmered in the pasta sauce so that it absorbs those incredibly robust, garlic flavors and the asparagus adds a fresh, earthy spring flavor. If you can’t find carrots large enough, substitute in your favorite veggie – this sauce and ingredient combination will go with literally anything, so maybe try golden beets, zucchini and sweet potato!

I’m excited for this partnership with Victoria Fine Foods, but most importantly, I’m excited to bring you more inventive, easy, time-saving pasta recipes!

Now, mangiamo!

Note: Although Victoria Fine Foods sponsored this post, all opinions are my own, always.

I made this for dinner tonight but had left over cod, shrimp and scallops and used those instead with a pinch of red pepper and sprinkle of parmesan! New favorite and easy dish. Delicious!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

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 ...
