This is exactly the same recipe that I have in my old weight watcher's cookbook called "Two's Company". It has 8 points for 2 cups. You want to store the shrimp-pasta mixture and vinaigrette separately in the refrigerator; toss just before serving. This has a nice tangy asian flavor and it makes alot. Thanks, rickololic83 for posting.
This was way way better the next day. As written, I think there was too much dressing. I added a lot of crunchy veggies to fill this out (and butter beans) yum. thanks
