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!
