Ingredients

    2 serving Zuchini Squash (medium size)
    16 oz Shrimp, cooked
    2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    4 tsp Garlic
    .75 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
    2 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Pepper, black
    1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (by TORI7HARRISON)
    1 serving Lemon wedge or slice or 1/8 of one 2-1/8" dia lemon (by CHUCKLES0719)

Directions

1. Cut zucchini into spirals or noodle strands using vegetable spiralizer. Set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add garlic and shrimp. Cook shrimp until pink and cooked through. Don't let the garlic burn.

3. Add zucchini noodles and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes. Zucchini noodles cook quickly, so taste a strand as you cook and decide how firm or "al-dente" you want the zucchini. Don't overcook the zucchini noodles or else they'll become mush.

4. Once finished cooking, remove the pan from heat. Add Parmesan cheese, squeeze some lemon juice (optional) and season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Add chili flakes then serve warm.
