15-Minute Zucchini Noodles with Arugula Pesto + Shrimp

Spiralized zucchini noodles topped with a peppery arugula pesto and sautéed shrimp. A super easy dinner for those busy weeks!

In case you haven’t noticed, I love cooking with shrimp. It’s low in calories, very versatile and pretty much goes well with everything. From salad to deviled, I love me some shrimp!

This 15-Minute Zucchini Noodles with Arugula Pesto + Shrimp recipe is no exception.

Not only does it have shrimp but it has zucchini too! I love spiralizing my veggies. Do you have a spiralizer? I use this one because it’s lightweight, doesn’t take up room in my small kitchen and has the blades ATTACHED. That was the selling point for me. No extra pieces that might get lost? Sign me up!

Making a healthy dinner has never been easier!

Oh but let’s not forget my other favorite star of this show – arugula. I swear I can eat arugula straight out the bag! Like a snack. Like a goat. LOL. Like me, arugula is the Greatest Of All Time. Bad joke, don’t leave please.

Making this simple arugula pesto was a breeze and SO flavorful. I’ve already used it on chicken and even as a dipping sauce. If you can’t have shrimp, you can still enjoy these Zucchini Noodles with Arugula Pesto by themselves or with chicken.

I love easy meals like this for those crazy busy weeks. Promise you’ll love this too!
