Tonight for dinner was sweet shrimp, crisp asparagus & pasta in a garlic herb cream sauce...YUMMY! My family loves shrimp and since it's low in calories I usually add more than the original recipe calls for so adjust as you wish...
Shrimp & Asparagus with Pasta
in a Garlic Cream Sauce
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp Garlic Herb Alouette (try to find light)
2 lbs shrimp, peeled & cleaned
3 cups asparagus, lightly steamed (I used a steamer bag)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp garlic
1 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup fresh basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain pasta and stir in Alouette then stir in basil, S&P
When pasta is cooking heat oil in a large skillet and add garlic, sautee for about 1 minutes but don't let garlic burn. Add in shrimp and cook for about 5 minutes. Add in broth and asparagus and heat for a few minutes and then turn off till pasta is ready.
Combine the shrimp mixture & pasta mixture and serve.
WW points plus: 10
VERDICT: this was really good and your points may change is you use whole wheat/high fiber pasta and light alouette (I couldn't find it).
