Zucchini Pasta

This recipe convinced me that zucchini noodles could be as legitimately satisfying as regular pasta noodles. I am in love with this easy recipe. There's fresh zucchini, shrimp, oregano, butter, parmesan, and lots of garlic. The best part? It's easy to make and low on calories and carbs while having maximum flavor!
