Try as we might, a healthy food routine rarely sticks. Bland, boring food leads us right back to our unhealthy favorites. That’s why we’re developing healthy recipes that actually taste good. This simple garlic shrimp alfredo with zoodles is just one example, and you’re going to want to try it. Shrimp is sautéed with garlic and spices, then bedded on creamy zucchini noodles. Add a generous dusting of parmesan and some chopped bacon for one incredible meal. Healthy? Yes! Tasty? Yes! Let’s get cooking!
Zoodles are all the rage, and the Good Cook Mandolin turns zucchini into perfect noodles that replace your carb-heavy pasta. The trick is to sauté them until just warm, so they don’t turn into a soggy mess. Use the Good Cook Everyday Chroma Sauté Pan to get your zoodles perfectly cooked. Give it a try!
