Low-Carb Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles and Parmesan is just on time because I am so in love with my Shrimp Scampi Dip recipe. I decided to turn it into a healthy shrimp scampi zucchini noodles dish. Zucchini noodles are a great way to put together a low-carb dish that still packs a lot of flavor. I had the majority of the ingredients left over from when I made the dip. I purchased the zucchini and whipped up a great substitute.

Zucchini noodles can be a great substitute to save carbs in pasta dishes. They are low-carb and great for keto and paleo diets. However, zucchini noodles do not have the same texture as pasta. I get this question a lot. The answer is no, but I do find it to be a very tasty substitute.
