Skinny Shrimp Scampi

Since the hubby is deployed, I’ve taken a real interest in cooking and trying new Pinterest recipes. I’ve become quite to cook if I do say so myself! I found this recipe and instantly wanted to try it. Not only is it healthy but it has ZOODLES! Yep, zucchini noodles…which are absolutely delicious.

And it was even good leftover! I will definitely be making this again.
