Number of Servings: 4


    1/4 cup olive oil
    2 tbsp I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light
    4 oz Romano Cheese
    4 Servings Spaghetti noodles
    16 large cooked shrimp (tails etc removed)
    1 1/2 tsp pepper (the good stuff)
    and salt to taste


Cook spaghetti in salted water in a large, wide-bottomed pot. Drain spaghetti, reserving 1 1/2 cups of pasta cooking water.

Cook shrimp in 1 tbsp ICBINB-L till done and put aside. (you can add garlic and/or lemon to this for a nice twist!)

Dry out your pot, then heat the olive oil over high heat until almost smoking. Add drained spaghetti and 1 cup of reserved pasta water and jump back, this will splatter.

Add ICBINB-L, 3 ounces cheese and ground pepper and toss together with tongs. Taste, adding more pasta water, cheese, pepper or salt to taste.

Serve immediately, sprinkling with reserved cheese and an extra grind or two of black pepper.
