Peppy Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MizzNezz

Shrimp in a spicy, creamy sauce. Put it over rice, pasta, or toasted french bread slices. This is really a good one!

This was very good. I had a jar of hot jalapenos and used 6 slices but it was too much. Very hot! I left out all the butter and just sauteed in EVOO. I sauteed 1/2 c. asparagus for extra color. I used Fat Free half&half and the consistency was fine. For a party, I sauteed my vegies, added the spices to the broth in a cup, and precooked the pasta. While everyone was making their salads, I heated it, added the shrimp, then the broth then the cream and it was ready! If you weren't watching your weight, I would suggest thickening the sauce just a little. I served it over whole wheat bowties as we're all on the South Beach Diet, and it was great! Thanks.
