Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiZucchini Noodle Lobster Scampi FTW! So excited about this one guys. Because:

1) Anytime you can have lobster for dinner is seriously winning.

2) We all know how much I love my pasta, but swapping out high carb noodles for low carb zoodles on the reg is just plain smart.

Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiSquash noodles are a revelation sent from the gods to keep a pasta-holic like me from constantly falling off the wagon. Not that they’re anything new at this point. I’ve talked about my love of spaghetti squash numerous times before (if you haven’t made my spaghetti squash with vegan alfredo sauce or spaghetti squash with lentil ragu yet…DO IT), but this is the first time actually I’ve posted a zucchini noodle recipe here.

Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiWhich is crazy because zucchini noodles appear regularly on our dinner menu at home. We especially love making shrimp scampi zoodles because it comes together super quickly and it’s just insanely delicious.

Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiI’ve even made it when we’ve had guests over and it always gets rave reviews. Which got me thinking, why have I never stepped it up and made lobster scampi with zucchini noodles before?

Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiWell, I fixed that problem real quick. This lobster scampi is made exactly like shrimp scampi, only swapping out fancy ass lobster tails for the shrimp. And true to every other zucchini noodle recipe, your brain sort of thinks you’re having noodles but your tummy is thanking you for eating a plate full of vegetables.

Zucchini Noodle Lobster ScampiIf you don’t feel like splurging on lobster  you can substitute about 3/4 pound of shrimp and make it exactly the same way. I know lobster is a treat, but that’s what makes this meal so fun and special.  We all deserve to treat ourselves, and if that treat happens to be good for us too? Well so much the better.
