SMD26 Lower Fat Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta

Lower Fat Garlic Butter Shrimp and Fettuccine

Tonia Bloom
Recipe adapted from Damn Delicious.
This is one of our favorite flavor combinations of shrimp, butter, garlic, and spinach; not to mention it is fast and easy to make. We replaced the butter with a buttery spread in addition to reducing the amount from 8 tablespoons to 6 tablespoons in order to get the saturated fat from original recipe of 14.6 grams per serving to 2.25 grams per serving.
The fettuccine and shrimp have also been reduced to keep the "portion" sizes in balance with our Cardiac diet needs.
