    Delicious. I used Pesto Sauce and not sure if I used too much. The noodles was a little watery. I will try it again with less sauce

    I bought pesto and it turned out well. I also added Parmesan cheese to the top.

    it's important to remember to drain the pasta to make not as much liquid.
    Added tiny bit of chilli flakes turned out so yummy!!

    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!

    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.

    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

    It was good wasn't able to drain zucchini well enough calorie counts are waaaay off please adjust because it is significantly off based on ingredients mine came out to 275 cals per serving using same ingredients in my fitness pal calculator and used waaaaay less olive oil

    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.
