This is another one of those crazily easy, yet fancy looking meals you can whip up in under half an hour – similar to this recipe. It’s full of fresh, light flavors, and super healthy, and looks ever so pretty on a plate! And you won’t get the bloating and other issues you’d get with real spaghetti.

It’s only as delicious as the ingredients you prepare it with, so make them fresh and high-quality if possible. We get our shrimp and veggies from the farmers market, and this always turns out super tasty.
