Light Alfredo Shrimp & Asparagus Pasta Dinner

Submitted by: REVCORNIE
Light Alfredo Shrimp & Asparagus Pasta Dinner

Introduction

Very filling meal that you can vary with chicken, ground beef or sliced beef. The recipe is for ONE; to use an entire bunch of asparagus from the grocery, multiply by 6. This is a filling meal, so additional courses aren't necessary. Very filling meal that you can vary with chicken, ground beef or sliced beef.

Ingredients

    Fill sauce pan 2/3 full of water, cover with tight fitting lid. Place on stover burner turned to HIGH until water is boiling. Add 2 oz of whole wheat spaghetti. Don't put lid back on, or the pan will boil over.

    In frying pan/skillet, add 2 tsp olive oil. Heat while you rinse and cut off the woody ends of 7 thin asparagus stems. Chop the remaking pieces into 1 1/2 inch pieces (bite size). Put into pan & stir. Add 1 cup fresh mushroom pieces, stir again.

    Give spaghetti a stir to keep it from sticking. (I usually cook my shrimp in the same hot water if I am doing just "dinner for one." Cook shrimp separately if you have a group or the pasta will be mushy.)

    Add basil & garlic to vegetables. I use 1 tsp dried measure or 6 fresh leaves and 2 crushed cloves. You may have less adventurous tastes and want to hold back, but what's the point of using an herb if we aren't tasting it?

    Toss the drained spaghetti into the herbed veggies, stir around quickly, add the warm meats, and add 2 Tbs of Greek plain nonfat yogurt. Mix & heat gently. Add 20 grams shredded Parmesan cheese and pepper if you like.

Tips

Basic recipe, go to plan for what can I make in 15 to 20 minutes & be glad to eat it.
