Back to Zoodles! We started our zoodle experience with this Shrimp recipe. It really was easy to make (and even easier for me since all I did was thaw the shrimp). Bronwyn even helped in the noodle process. These noodles - while not like actual pasta, do hold up pretty nice and certainly can play the part of pasta.
We have a few more zoodle dishes lined up to try. Now our mission is to get Bronwyn to eat more of them. She's not fooled that they are real noodles, silly parents…
