Low Cal Shrimp Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by boy named Sous

This may be low in calories, but it is definately high in taste. The combination of Ranch and Italian dressings sounds odd, but is VERY good! My son is a chef at a restaurant in town and the head chef told me about it when I commented on their wonderful pasta!

Disappointing after the phenomenal write up - recipe is also a bit ambiguous as I did not know if was to be served warm or chilled.
