This is a very garlicky salad. A nice fast dinner. A slight adaptation from a recipe in "Weight Watchers Miracle Foods" cookbook. Each serving is 3 points as written. Though I suggest a tad more sauce, which would make the points go up a smidge. Red onion is preferred because of the milder taste. If you like the taste of raw onion, then yellow is fine too. The original recipe called for serving it immediately. I like to let it sit a few minutes so the tastes will meld, but it would not keep for more then an hour or 2. If you don't have baby greens, spinach would be excellent.
I felt creative one night and threw a little of this and that in a pan and came up with this really yummy recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! PLEASE let me know if you try this and what you think! 6 WW points plus
Yesterday was my turn to bring snacks to my Cuban salsa class -- the dance that is. After scanning dozens of recipes, I couldn't find what I wanted so I created this one. After watching my classmates tip the bowl, I decided it was worth posting. While the ingredients are familiar, the ratio of tomatoes, beans and corn is quite different from the dozens already here. So easy, its a crowd pleaser.
I *invented* this dish for my boyfriend-it's now his absolute favorite meal! I love it because it is incredibly fast, easy, and delicious! Recipe can easily double by using 1/2 lb of each type of seafood and using 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Slightly increase amount of oil/butter used to saute seafood if doubling. Recipe can easily be altered to suit your personal seafood tastes. Use all shrimp or all scallops (use 1/2 lb total weight for 2 servings, or 1 lb total weight for 4 servings).
Romantic little recipe for two that wont leave you too full to flirt!
Yummy garlic and wine sauce coat the shrimp and pasta. A salad and some crusty fresh bread would be very nice with this and a nice chablis or chardonnay wouldn't hurt either!
I came up with this after totally revamping a recipe found on healthycookingrecipes.com.
"PLEASE adjust the seasonings to make it perfect for you and DO let me know how you change it up."
UPDATE! As listed yes the portion is quite large as you would find in a restaurant. Feel free to reduce the amount of pasta to save calories. We always have leftovers which is fine by me! I remove the shrimp to reheat. Zap pasta in micro for a few minutes then add the shrimp on top for about 20 seconds to remove the chill! Also feel free to experiment! More tomatoes, canned tomatoes (just use organic or add a pinch of sugar) less red pepper, more red pepper. You get the idea. Enjoy!
This has to be the most requested recipe in my way-too-vast collection. It comes from Chiffonade Chef on the FC site, and she submitted it to Gourmet magazine some years ago. It was accepted and printed almost immediately. It's so easy, and so tasty, you will see why.
