Shrimp Pasta with Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce
This recipe makes enough sauce for four small-medium portions of pasta.
1 cup 1% milk
1 1/2 Tbs butter
1 1/2 Tbs flour
3 Tbs Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp minced garlic
pepper, salt, oregano
Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium.
Once the butter is melted, slowly whisk in the flour. This will make a thick yellow paste.
Slowly add the milk and continue to whisk until all the milk is added and there are no lumps.
Heat for 3-5 minutes and continue to whisk. Once the milk mixture is warm through add the Parmesan cheese
Add pepper, salt as needed, and other herbs such as oregano if you wish.
For dinner we cooked onion, garlic, and zucchini in a small amount of oil until soft.
We then added shrimp and cooked for a very short amount of time, just enough to cook the shrimp thoroughly but not make them rubbery.
We mixed the shrimp and zucchini with the Alfredo sauce and served it over pasta.
