Servings: 4


  • 4 4medium zucchinis, spiralized into spaghetti noodles (Blade D on theInspiralizer)
  • 1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, shelled, cleaned
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or closer to 1/2 teaspoon, if you like spice)
  • 14.5 ounce can crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 1/4 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 10minutes. 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 the zucchini noodles.
