in the seemingly never-ending effort to eat healthy, i've been scouring pinterest for yummy recipe ideas.  i ran across a great food blog called skinny taste a while ago but have just recently cooked a couple of things from it.  spurred on by adam's love of this blog i made a chicken dish last weekend and a shrimp dish last night.  the chicken dish turned out ok and i would probably make it again with a few minor changes.  the shrimp dish, on the other hand, was great!  the original recipe (and much prettier picture of the food)  can be found here.  mine looked like this:

i modified the recipe slightly, using smaller shrimp and adding mushrooms.  i also like to substitute spaghetti squash for pasta, which helps tremendously with the carbs and weight watchers points, and it worked great with this dish. 

i calculated the points in weight watchers and it comes out to 5 WW+ points instead of 9 when you use the spaghetti squash.  not knowing how much this recipe would yield, i assumed 4 servings, but i think this was more like 6 or 7 - it makes a ton! - so the points may be even lower.  regardless, a huge serving of 5 point yumminess makes me happy!  the bf loved it, too, and hoovered down two big bowls.  lucky for me i have leftovers!

this recipe is definitely a keeper.  it does give a little kick with the amount of red pepper it calls for, so if you don't like spicy you may want to cut it down or omit it all together.  i think next time i will also saute the shrimp in garlic instead of just olive oil. 

looking forward to more skinny taste recipes!
