Shrimp Zoodle Bowl With Pomodoro Sauce


This scrumptious shrimp dish ditches pasta for zoodles, aka zucchini noodles, and tops everything with an Italian raw pomodoro sauce. The shrimp is sautéed quickly with fresh corn and sweet pepper, tossed with spiralized squash and topped with mouthwatering flavor from tomato, garlic and fresh basil in the light sauce. The whole bowl comes together with bright taste to warm, nourish and cheer you.

Want some tips to avoid soggy zoodles? Keep the skin on your squash when spiralizing, pat dry and don’t overcook! Zucchini noodles cook quickly, taking just 2 to 3 minutes to warm up in a hot pan. Zoodles should be cooked al dente – just like pasta.
