Yes, you are reading this right, this is a guilt free fabulous shrimp pasta dish!
Last week I introduced you to Palmini Rice, well today we are moving over to Palmini Pasta.I found it at my local Publix but you can always order it from Amazon and they come in cans and pouches.
- 1 cup of well rinsed Palmini Angel Hair Pasta
- 1/2 cup diced tomato
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped basil
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/4 tsp of pepper
- 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 tsp non fat yoghurt
- 1/2 lemon
- 7 oz of peeled shrimp
- Drizzle of olive oil x 2
Thoroughly rinse your palmini angel hair pasta and set aside.
In a preheated pan, put a drizzle of olive oil and saute the garlic and tomatoes, add the pasta and mix. Stir it around for 3 to 4 minutes (pasta will start getting a nice golden color. Toss the basil in.
In this case I had used a large pan, so pushed the pasta to the side and drizzled a little bit more of olive oil and placed the shrimp. Add the Squeeze of 1/2 lemon and let them cook away.
They cook really quickly so under minute per side will do and then integrate the pasta. Season to taste (add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes), I used the above measurements but you can be your own judge :-).
Add some extra basil and the yoghurt to give it a creamy touch and believe it or not, you would never know you are not having a lovely pasta dish!
