A healthy and flavorful dinner on the table in 30 minutes! Roasted Tomatoes and Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles is an easy and flavorful dinner made with simple ingredients. It’s gluten-free, Paleo and Whole30 compliant too!
I think we may have had our last weekend with temperatures in the 80’s. Yesterday it was 90 degrees and today it’s only supposed to be in the 70’s. It’s time for me to accept that summer is nearly over and fall is less than two weeks away. Nights are getting cooler making my early morning runs a little chillier too. At least I haven’t had to start wearing gloves yet. The trees are starting to change color and in a couple weeks we’ll head up to the mountains to see all the aspen in their fall glory. I really do love fall and next to summer it’s my favorite time of year…it’s just hard to let go of summer.
With cooler temperatures coming that means I can actually stand to turn the oven on again. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably still be out at the grill until that first snowflake falls, but it’s nice to have options again. One meal I’ll be making over and over again this fall is Roasted Tomatoes and Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles.
The tomatoes in my garden haven’t done as well this summer as they have in the past. They taste great when I can pick them, but they haven’t been ripening very fast. That means I’ve been having to buy most of them which is such a bummer. Luckily the ones I have bought have been good, but even if they weren’t, roasting them greatly improves the flavor.
Making these Roasted Tomatoes and Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles was one of the easiest dinners I currently have in my arsenal. Along with being easy it’s also super healthy, gluten-free, Paleo and even Whole30 compliant for all of you doing that this month. The only seasonings you need for this dish, which I bet you already have, are olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon and parsley. The tomatoes and shrimp are roasted on a sheet pan and create their own sauce as they roast. The “zoodles” are quickly sautéed in a skillet and the tomatoes and shrimp can be poured right over the top of them. Finish it off with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh fresh parsley and dinner is done. No excuses make this easy, delicious dinner tonight!
