Zucchini Spaghetti with Scampi and Pesto


500g raw scampi
2 gloves of garlic
Coconut oil
3 zucchinis (spiralize the zucchini into spaghetti shape)
150g quinoa spaghetti
250g frozen peas
Basil pesto
salt and pepper




Heat water for the quinoa spaghetti and as you put the quinoa spaghetti into the pot you start heating up the pan with coconut oil for the scampi and as they start taking colour you add the garlic. Keep turning the scampis while cooking, 2 minutes before the pasta is done you add the frozen peas into the spaghetti and cook until pasta is finished. Drain the spaghetti and peas and quick mix it with the zucchini spaghetti, add the scampis and pesto, seasoning with salt and pepper and ready to eat.
