Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

You can replace the pasta in your
shrimp scampi with healthy zucchini noodles.
I found this spiralizer at
Target last year. You can also use
a mandoline slicer.
It easily turns squash, potatoes, carrots
etc. into thin spaghetti-like strands.
Prep 2 zucchini.
 Saute the garlic in hot oil and butter in a large
skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. 
Add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
 Add the shrimp and saute for 3 minutes until cooked.
Season with salt and pepper. 
Use a slotted spoon to remove the shrimp from 
the pan. Stir in the wine and lemon juice. Simmer
1 minute then add the zucchini.
 Toss the zucchini and cook for 2 minutes.
Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
 Serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
