Step 1

In a large pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Step 2

Add shrimp and cook until pink, for 1-2 more minutes. Add salt, pepper, basil, red pepper flakes. Stirr to combine. Add water and heavy cream.

Step 3

Cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Step 4

Add parmesan cheese, cook for one more minute. If the sauce appears too thin, you can thicken it with 2 tsp flour mixed with 1 tbsp warm water. I rarely need to thicken this sauce.

Step 5

Add zucchini noodles, stir to coat in the sauce. Add more salt and pepper if needed.

Step 6

Sprinkle some more Parmesan on top and add capers. Garnish with chopped parsley or fresh basil. Serve immediately.
