Velvet Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This looks deliciously decadent, yet it's from Light & Tasty so it's won't break the calorie bank! I plan to make this for my brother's birthday this summer (he loves shrimp and fettucini).

This was a hit! I also used non-fat half & half. It worked great -- sauce was nice and smooth. I used less shrimp but placed them on a bed of cheese tortellini and served the sauce over it all. I loved the little bit of "kick" given by the seafood seasoning.
