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!

Spiralized Carrot Spaghetti with Shrimp and Shaved Asparagus

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!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
