Shrimp Alfredo Recipe With Zoodles
Homemade zucchini noodles, aka zoodles is my other go to after spaghetti squash when making pasta dishes we love low carb and keto friendly. They don’t taste like pasta but they are perfect for getting the “swirling of noodles” that is so much fun to do with a fork when you are eating pasta.
If you have never made homemade zucchini noodles, aka zoodles you might be a bit nervous, and I totally get it. But I can tell you that they are super tasty! If you are a pasta lover who is going low carb or keto looking for a solution, zoodles might be just what you are looking for. Although even if you are not eating low carb or keto and are just looking for a tasty healthy Shrimp Alfredo Recipe this one is perfect!
Using Zucchini To make Noodles
I know that when you are making a recipe that involves things like zucchini it can be difficult to know what size you should be grabbing. For this shrimp alfredo recipe with zoodles, you will want to use 2 medium zucchinis per serving(this recipe makes 4 servings). A medium zucchini will net you roughly 2 cups of zucchini noodles, which has just 33 calories, and just 4 net carbs (6 grams of total carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber) per medium zucchini.
To make zucchini noodles you do need a Zoodle spiralizer, there are quite a few different options that you have for this, a KitchenAid Mixer spiralizer attachment, a handheld spiralizer and a counter top spiralizer are a few options, but just go with what works best for you.

- Preheat Oven to 500 degrees.
- Clean your zucchini and spiralize your zoodles.
- Toss your zoodles with olive oil and Spread your zoodles onto a sheet pan in an even layer.

- Whisk together until butter and cream have combined and until the sauce bubbles slightly.
- Add Parmesan cheese and garlic powder and stir until everything is mixed well. Turn off the heat, the sauce will thicken as it cools a little.
