Ingredients

  • 1 pound of small shrimp
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes — , chopped (I use sun-dried tomatoes in oil)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves — , pressed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream — (half and half could be used)
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 medium zucchini — , made into zoodles
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp capers parsley or fresh basil for garnishing

Instructions

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

  5. Cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. 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.
  7. Add zucchini noodles, stir to coat in the sauce.
  8. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
  9. Sprinkle some more Parmesan on top and add capers. Garnish with chopped parsley or fresh basil. Serve immediately.
