Ok. I’ve finally caved and jumped on the zoodles bandwagon. As much as I’ve told myself I wouldn’t, the wife has been hounding me FOREVER to make some. I’ve got to admit they’re pretty tasty, especially with some prosciutto wrapped scallops on top!

I’ve had a little spiralizer in the cupboard for ages, and I finally decided to whip it out and make a light dinner with some flavor.

So I opted for zoodles (aka zucchini noodles, if you’ve been living under a rock 😃) instead of fettucinni for today’s recipe. With a little garlic, lemon zest parmesan and basil, they’re packed with flavor!

I’ve been in a mood for scallops lately, and wrapping them in prosciutto really takes them over the top. Prosciutto comes out like a crisp bacon when seared and compliments scallops so well.

Especially topping them over a pasta with some complimentary Italian herbs and spices.

The trick to this zoodle recipe is timing. Zucchini noodles, need to be spiral-ized and cooked pretty much at the end.

And with scallops not taking too long to cook this can be a little tricky to time, making sure everything is still warm when it gets to the table.

You want a hot pan to get a nice sear on your prosciutto wrapped scallops, they only take about 2 minutes on each side to cook, and another minute (max) on the sides to get a nice crust on the prosciutto.

Then let them rest.

While they rest this is when I spiral and cook my zoodles since it only takes a couple minutes.

This makes a great weeknight dinner, or even a date night if you’re trying to impress the wife. Nothing says “lets get busy”. Pro tip: keep the garlic to a minimum if that’s really what you’re trying to say with this recipe 😜

Enough Talk More Rock.

Meatless Lasagna

Beef isn't a meat we eat much of in our house. I'm pretty much the only person in the house that enjoys red meat. So being the short-order restaurant that my kitchen usually becomes, I have to find alternatives to make everyone happy...
