Lately I eat a lot of yogurt and fruit, mini bagels, veggie sausage and the new Weight Watcher’s Jalapeno cheese spread (triangles like the laughing cow).  I tend to get an iced coffee or my new favorite in the hotter temps, a Starbuck’s Mocha Frappuccino Light over my lunch break.

Later, if I’m hungry, I fix myself a garden veggie burger with lots of pickles and ketchup or Archer Farms Cherry Almond Oatmeal – that stuff is SO good!  When I get home, Grumpy and I head to Planet Fitness to exercise and by the time we get home it’s late so I don’t feel like cooking any type of meal that calls for lot of kitchen clean up.  So, we usually end up with something like Easy Sausage Pizza or BBQ Vegetarian Chicken Pita Pizza.

 

Garlic Shrimp with Spinach and Vermicelli

 

Recently I found a Weight Watcher’s booklet for 15 minute recipes.  Since Grumpy and I were home at dinner time for once and since I hadn’t really cooked what you can call a real meal in a few days, I decided to make the shrimp and pasta dish that Grumpy thought looked yummy.  The house smelled wonderful of garlic and butter and seafood!

 

 

This recipe is definitely a keeper.  Next time I may add some grated parmesan cheese and even a little dried red pepper flake to add some heat!  Overall, this is a delicious, quick and easy recipe for busy weekday suppers!!

    I love that low calorie dishes like this look good and have flavor! (I'm with you, I'd probably add some red pepper flakes 🙂

    Great looking recipe! I've been doing shrimp and pasta a lot lately, this will be a new one to try! Did you add anything of your own to it? I'd be curious to see how some feta works in this recipe

    We thoroughly love this dish! It’s so quick and easy, that it somehow seems wrong that it could taste this good.
    Garlic Shrimp with spinach is wonderful. The only thing I change is to use angel hair pasta.
