A Simple, Italian Feast!

Why Italian on this particular day? It’s exactly 2 weeks until we leave for our Italian adventure! Rami and I have been planning a sort of Eurotrip for a few months now and it’s finally upon us. We’re officially going to Italy and a few other countries over the next couple of months and we’re so excited to blog about the entire trip and all the yummy food we’ll be experiencing. We think our Instagram and Youtube will thank us!

How did this come about? We’ve been dreaming of a life beyond New York ever since we first met. The destination was never set in stone but we always knew we wanted to travel as much as we could. Italy was naturally the first choice. I took a few years of Italian in high school and fell in love with it, continuing to study it on my own whenever I could. When we realized travel was in our near future, Rami quickly caught up thanks to some tutoring and audio lessons. After weeks of scouring for good airline deals and countless Airbnb inquiries, we finally booked our first few stays!

Low Carb Lemon Garlic Shrimp PastaWe’re going to be living in Rome and Florence for the first few weeks of our adventure. During this time, we’ll be sampling all the local, delicious cuisine and, not to mention, relaxing a bit. We can’t think of a better place to start our travels than picturesque Tuscany. To celebrate this milestone in our lives, we’ve decided to announce it alongside a classic Italian recipe with a low carb spin, of course.

Our Low Carb Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta was done before we could even get hungry! This easy, low carb dinner has just a few ingredients and can be ready in only 20 minutes. This recipe is also the third in our Miracle Noodle series. We bought a variety pack on Amazon and have been working our way through it, experimenting with lots of different recipes. If you want to check out the two previous ones, have a look!

For this recipe, we threw in some fresh shrimp (always better than frozen!) and lemon slices for a really fresh, light meal that can be made for lunch or dinner. At only 3.5 grams of net carbs per serving, anyone can enjoy this pasta any day of the week!

If you’re a fan of easy, low carb dinner recipes that only take a few common ingredients to make, you should definitely take a look at our latest ecookbook – Dinner in Five. It’s full of dinner recipes that use only 5 ingredients each. Every recipe in the book is 5 grams of net carbs or fewer – that means staying in keto just got easier. Take a look at what others are saying about Dinner in Five before you try it for yourself!

In the meantime, enjoy this super simple dinner recipe and stay tuned for many more Italian inspired dishes!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Set a pot of water to boil. Drain the water from your Miracle Noodle Angel Hair bag and rinse the noodles for a few minutes in cool water. Then, boil them for 2 minutes.
    Boil noodles
  2. Add them to a dry, hot pan on medium heat and dry roast them to evaporate most of the excess water. This will help the noodles absorb more flavors while cooking. Once they're dry, set them aside while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

  3. In the same pan, add the butter and olive oil and let them heat up. Crush the garlic cloves and add them to the butter and oil. Cook until fragrant but not brown.
