Tonight I made a shrimp penne rosa recipe modified from this pin on Pinterest. Most of my recipes are modified for 2 people, but I don't believe in small portion sizes so you can modify from there. I also almost always weigh my ingredients instead of measuring with cups as I find it is truly the most accurate.
Penne Rosa with Shrimp
6 oz Smart Taste Penne pasta
170 g medium shrimp, thawed and tails removed
1/2 T olive oil
Red pepper flake
2 cloves minced garlic
170 g baby Bella mushrooms
2 small Roma tomatoes
1/2 C Prego heart smart Red pepper sauce
75g Oikos plain Greek yogurt
2 C baby spinach
First, boil water and cook penne to desired texture. While cutting veggies up, heat the oil in a deep skillet on medium. When hot, add the garlic and red pepper flake. After about 2 minutes, add mushrooms and tomatoes. I like to cut my tomatoes in pretty big chunks, just to keep them together more. Cool for 5 minutes, until mushrooms release all their water. Then turn it up to medium/hot and add shrimp. Mmm.
For 2 servings it is 451 calories and 35g of protein. And worth it. It took Alex and I about 3 minutes to take care of this pan.
