Zucchini Noodles with Pesto Shrimp

Here’s another version of cooking zucchini noodles with shrimp.

Ingredients
Shrimp
Zuchinni- julienned
Cherry tomatoes
Pesto
Minced garlic
Goat cheese
Grass-fed butter (optional)

Method

Just toss all ingredients together in a skillet on medium-low heat. Stir everything together until noodles, cheese and butter have soften up and sauce has formed. Nothing was measured here. Be creative and it all depends on quantity you have available. I had 3 large zucchinis, 1 lb. of shrimp and half box of tomatoes. I added 2 tsps of pesto, 1 tsp of minced garlic, 1 tb of goat cheese and 1 tb of butter.

Take out and toss in shrimp, lemon juice, parsley and feta cheese.
