    MamaJ's Note:

    I found this recipe in a pampered chef cookbook called, "It's Good For You!" This light version of a normally high fat entree is creamy and delicious and doesn't taste like "diet food". Give it a try, you will be glad you did. * According to the cookbook it has 300 calories and 8 g. of fat per serving.

      I NEVER rate a recipe, mainly because they are rarely worthy of the effort to do so. However, this recipe is an exception! Its worth the time and effort to not only rate it, but to prepare it and serve it to family and friends. After a party, I happened to have a a lot of veggies on hand, as well as frozen shrimp. I went in search of a recipe to use it all up. My search ended here. I would never have thought to use sour cream and evaporated milk to make a thick and creamy sauce. Never! This recipe went together quickly and can easily be adapted to the veggies you have on hand (I added broccoli substituted cherry tomatoes since that is what I had) and you could even substitute chicken. My husband prefers spicy food so I sprinkled the shrimp with a little cayenne pepper prior to sauteing. He RAVED about this dish. "This is company worthy!" I have to agree. This was easy, delicious, beautiful and best of all healthy. I am leary of trying new recipes but this one? This one is really good! I encourage anyone to try it. I will definitely make this again.
