Mock Shrimp Scampi Pasta

I’ve been trying to change things up for healthy recipes, but for some reason my mind always goes to pasta. The other night I made up a little mock dish of some shrimp scampi pasta. I decided to go with some zucchini noodles to keep it on the healthy side. I’m the type of person who likes to take almost any type of short cut I can, so yes I bought a bag of frozen zucchini noodles. This is my first time ever messing with zucchini noodles, so I look at the back of the bag to see how many servings the bag contained and it said 4, so I’m like okay this is perfect. …It was not 4 servings, you guys. First of all I have a husband that eats at least 2 servings any time I cook dinner…and this bag was MAYBE a serving and a half. I was so disappointed. Although I did not have enough food made for dinner, we still split what I had made, and it was GOOD.
