Submitted by: CINNAMONGIRAFFE

Introduction

Tasty, light, spicy pasta/seafood dish. Tasty, light, spicy pasta/seafood dish.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    13.25 oz box of whole grain thin spaghetti (or angel hair)

    2 tablespoons olive oil (plus a little more for the pasta)

    1/2 cup chopped onion

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1.5 cups chopped/sliced peppers (for a milder dish use red/orange/yellow bell peppers, or add fresh hot peppers for a spicer dish)

    1 lb. large peeled and deveined shrimp

    ~2 cups snow peas (or some other fresh green veggie, through you may have to adjust cooking times)

    0.5 to 1 tsp. Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning (or similar spicy-type Cajun/Creole seasoning)

    1/4 tsp. black pepper

    1/4 tsp. dried basil

    Experiment by adding different kinds of peppers and additional veggies like mushrooms, broccoli, celery, scallions, etc. (though these extras aren't included in the calorie count)

Directions

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Toss with a little bit of olive oil (to prevent the noodles from sticking together) and set aside. In a large skillet, add oil, onions, garlic, and peppers and saute 5-8 minutes until onions become translucent and peppers are mostly cooked. Add the shrimp, snow peas, and spices and saute for about 5 more minutes until the shrimp are pink. Mix pasta with the stir fry and serve, or serve the stir fry over the pasta. Either way this recipe makes about 6 servings- each being about 1.5 cups (or 6 ounces).
