Looking for a low-carb, healthy meal ready in approximately 15 minutes, give or take?  I have for you shrimp scampi in the skillet with zucchini noodles.  At about 200 calories per serving, WOW, I’m on this “Zoodle Train!” Toot-toot!

fullsizeoutput_4358.jpegFirst, you need a spiralizer if you do not currently have one.  They come from pricey to low-end.  If you don’t want to spend big bucks, I recommend starting out with a low-end option to see how much you will use it.  And, then down the line, you can invest in a more expensive, solid metal one, like a before, if you feel is deemed worth.

I love this one that attaches to my KitchenAid stand mixer. It comes with several spiral shape options.
