Shrimp and Pasta

Jane Whittaker


I had the challange of making a pasta dish that was waist friendly and not using cream or butter. YIKES!!!
I came up with this delish version of a higher calorie dish using shrimp stock instead of butter and cream.
Lots of flavor, not so many calories.
This has about 11 WW points per serving.
