Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine

Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine is super flavorful, tasty, and simple to prepare.

Now that I like shrimp, Mike has put together a simple and flavorful recipe to prepare it. We've enjoyed it over brown rice and with the recipe below for fettuccine alfredo. Both ways are delicious.

Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine
·½ lb pre-cooked shrimp
·1 TBS butter
·1 tsp minced garlic
·1 tsp Italian seasoning
·Dash of black pepper
·1 recipe Low Cal Fettuccine Alfredo

Prepare Low Cal Fettuccine Alfredo according to recipe. Note: Reserve 1 cup of starchy cooking liquid before draining the noodles.

In a medium non-stick skillet, melt butter. Add garlic, Italian seasoning, pepper, and shrimp. Cook shrimp for 3-4 minutes.

In a large dish, combine cooked pasta, prepared alfredo sauce, and reserved cooking liquid. Place pasta in bowls and top with cooked shrimp. Serve with a green vegetable on the side.

Yield: 2-3 servings
