Use a spiralizer to cut zucchini into noodles or use a peeler very carefully to do so.
Place a large sauté pan over medium-low heat.
Add the olive oil and heat it for 1 minute.
Add the garlic and crushed red pepper flakes.
Add the shrimp to the pan and cook them, stirring as needed, until they are cooked throughout and pink on all sides, about 3 minutes.
Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and then using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a bowl, leaving any liquid in the pan.
Increase the heat to medium.
Add the pesto and lemon juice to the pan.
Add the zucchini noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine.
Season with salt and pepper, top with cheese.
