Description

Cherry Tomato Pasta and Shrimp – delicious enough for a date night, but comes together quick enough for ANY night of the week!


Ingredients

Scale

3 oz quinoa pasta, edamame pasta, brown rice pasta 

23 cups zucchini noodles, about 1 8 inch long zucchini

1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 pints cherry tomatoes, this is moderate in fructan – if sensitive to fructans reduce to 1 pint cherry tomatoes and this dish will still have a ton of flavor*

½ teaspoon salt

½ pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

¼ cup chopped chives, fresh or freeze-dried

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

½ cup fresh basil roughly chopped


Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions in a large pot of salted water. Drain and set aside. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and salt and cook, stirring occasionally until the tomatoes have burst. This takes about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the zucchini noodles, shrimp, chives, red pepper flakes, and allow to cook uncovered for about another 5 minutes. The tomatoes will turn into a sauce and the shrimp will turn opaque. Stir in the basil and pasta and add more salt to taste.
  4. Divide between two plates and enjoy.
