A little tweak to an online recipe to reduce the nutritional stats.
Came up with this when I was looking for a way to use leftover cooked spaghetti squash. I was already using it for a pasta substitute, so I thought it would work as a bread substitute in a casserole. I was right. I am on a low-fat diet, so no butter/margarine is used.
Replacing the butter or margarine with liquid Butter Buds, using low-fat cream cheese, and low-fat whipped topping saves 10-15 gm of fat. In addition, using Splenda instead of sugar saves carbohydrates (sugar).
You can substitute raspberry gelatin and whole raspberries for the strawberries.
A recipe from Pillsbury that I converted to sugar free, lower carb, and higher protein. The Pillsbury folks suggested using frozen cooked chicken - a great idea to save time.
Recipe from the Pampered Chef
Tip: For the best texture, do not prepare this dish more than 1 hour in advance. ONce combined with the acidic lime juice, the shrimp will begin to firm up and eventually become tough and rubbery.
Based on a recipe from a superb low carb cook, I've "Texanized" the original. Have it plain OR garnish with your choice of salsa, sour cream (or Greek yogurt), chopped pickled/fresh jalapeños, chopped tomatoes, sliced/chopped avocados. The almond flour is really optional, but included in the nutritional statistics. The ricotta cheese blends in so well, you won't know it's there -- but adds some wonderful protein to the stats.
Nutritional stats figured for the products I used. Recipe edited to heat milk with soup.
