Pasta With Shrimp and Beans (Weight Watchers)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

Although I changed this recipe a bit from the original printed in Weight Watchers Mix It and Match It - I don't think the points have changed. Points are about 7 per serving.

  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.
  2. While spaghetti is cooking, in a skillet over medium high heat heat oil.

Thank you, Ellie, it was great. I loved it. I halved the quantities, since it is only me and my DH, and I used a full 15oz can of red kidney beans. It was extremely easy, and I loved it. Thanks again. Kaybe

A nice lunch yesterday. The reason I gave it four stars is because the directions in step three confused me. Whether it took 3-5 minutes to do this step, or if I was supposed to wait 3-5 minutes for step 3. Nonetheless, it was a nice light dinner for us, and I did not adjust anything. Made for new zaar tag.
