    I am going to post periodically recipes thatI have tried while calorie watching. Check back every few days and see what i have posted.

    I have found that many calorie watch recipes are rather tasty.

    Today for lunch I made the following but substituted scallops for shrimp. It was really yummy ;-) :-P

    Shrimp and Linguine

    3/4 lbs shrimp or scallops
    3/4 cup coarsly chopped carrots
    2 large roma tomates, seeded and diced
    1/4 cup sliced green onions w/ tops
    1/3 cup grateded parmesean cheese (fresh)
    8 oz uncooked wheat linguine
    1 tsp. olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, pressed
    3/4 cup reduced sour cream
    1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk
    1/4 snipped fresh basil or tsp of dried
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp coarse black pepper

    Peel and devein the shrimp, remove tails. Chop carrots, dice tomatoes, slice onions and grate cheese.

    Cook pasta according to package instructions; drain. Return to pan and keep warm.

    meanwhile, heat oil in large pan. Add shrimp(scallops), carrots and garlic. cook and stir over med. heat 3-4 minutes or just until shrimp turns pink. Remove from skillet and keep warm.

    Gently heat the sour cream and milk over low heat use a whisk to stir this mix. ****Do not let it boil just get warm*****
    Stir in cheese, add shrimp misture, tomatoes, green onions, basil, salt and pepper, mix gently.

    Pour shrimp and vegtable mix over the pasta; toss gently to cover the pasta.

    If you want you can serve w/ a salad.

    4 servings / approx. 300 calories

    As a diabetic exchange it can be a substitute for 2 starches, 2 low fat meats, 1 vegtable (2 carbs).

    Shrimp is high in cholesterol but low in saturated fat.
