Shrimp Zucchini Pasta With Avocado Pesto Alfredo Recipe

This shrimp zucchini pasta with avocado pesto alfredo is delicious and low-carb!

Zucchini noodles are really becoming a favorite around this house. Even Mini Chef can’t seem to get enough of them. In fact, I’m down to my last bag of pasta because we simply prefer zucchini. It’s light, filling, filled with nutrients and you don’t feel like you have a brick in your tummy when you’re done eating.

In fact, Mini Chef’s ducky also enjoys zucchini pasta and was particularly impressed with this dish (pictured below). Mini Chef assured me that ducks do indeed enjoy shrimp and zucchini and I figure if a duck likes it, then surely my readers will as well! (Don’t worry, ducks are not my criteria for tasty recipes).

    Loving this recipe Tiffany! I just got a spiralizer for mothers day and love it! Zucchini Noodles totally feel so much lighter than regular noodles. Can’t wait to try that avocado alfredo with the shrimp!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Krista – Zoodles are amazing! I love them so very much. I really do enjoy them far more than regular pasta now. They just add so much more to the dish. Please let me know how you like the recipe! 🙂

  2. Gina-Marie Harrison says:

    Yum! More (easy!) zoodle recipes, please! This is awesome!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Gina-Marie – Count on it! 🙂

  3. Holly Hester says:

    Sounds great. I’ve never ever heard of zucchini noodles. Are they gluten free? Can you get them organic?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Holly – If you click the link in the ingredient list, I talk about how to make them. They are just spiralized zucchini.

  4. Great! I just picked my first zucchini! Now I know what I’m going to do with it. Thanks!

      Mary – My pleasure! Let me know how you like it!

  5. If I plan to use spaghetti noodles, is this recipe best served cold?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kayla – No, you can serve it warm if you prefer. Just let the noodles heat up the sauce for you after you’ve strained them.

  6. How many servings are in this recipe?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kay – Depends on how much of the “pasta” you make. But Personally, I could get about 3-4 servings out of this.

  7. so, on these zoodle recipes. You just spiralize the zucchini and that’s it? No cooking of it or anything?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Melanie – I have heard of people cooking them, and I did try it once. I didn’t care for the texture or flavor. I much prefer them raw. But if you decide to cook them, blanch them. Don’t boil them or they will fall apart.
