This Shrimp Scampi recipe is easy to prepare and delicious, plus healthy, too, as we're using sweet potato noodles, instead of the usual linguine, for added nutrition. I don't have the spiralizer so I just used store bought sweet potato noodles.

If you have the tools you may make the the noodles from scratch. 2-3 medium sized sweet potatoes should do. You may also use zucchini noodles or other veggie noodles as you wish.
