It was really good, however i agree there was quite a bit of liquid from the zucchini, need to drain some off. Next time maybe some mushrooms and more garlic! Yummy!!!!

Zucchini noodles need to be wrapped in paper towels to squeeze out most of the water before cooking. This dish was amazingly delicious!

Yummy I used pine nuts instead of walnuts

This was good, but it was the first time I’ve cooked zucchini noodles and there was a TON of extra liquid that I wasn’t prepared for.

This was so yummy and packed with so much flavor. Used chicken this time but will try with shrimp next. Definitely a keeper!
Too much liquid in the pesto cooked noodles for too long great flavor

Really good!! Squeeze some lemon into the mix and its perfect. You can't really mess anything up as long as you don't overcook the shrimp. I just used store bought pesto and it was fine

Such an awesome recipe! Used chicken instead of shrimp (my boyfriend isn't a seafood fan sadly) which is another great alternative to this recipe.
