Cilantro Pesto Shrimp with Rainbow Noodles

Pasta from carrots?!

Right now, Trader Joe’s has Organic Rainbow Carrots, which make for a beautiful Paleo pasta dish!


Using a vegetable peeler, make pasta strands with the carrots. Throw the “noodles” into a skillet with a little oil over medium heat and lightly sauté until barely wilted (you don’t want to over cook or they will be mushy).
