Shrimp and Peas Fettuccine Alfredo

This Shrimp and Peas Fettuccine Alfredo is only 5 Freestyle smart points per serving. And it’s made with low carb, low calorie Carba-Nada Fettuccine. ( I buy these Carba-Nada Noodles in a 6-pack on Amazon—->here.)

Which means you only pay less than $4.00 for a 10oz package- Amazing-and so worth it. You can have 1 1/2 cups plain for 3 Freestyle smart points.

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz dry Al Dente Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine (or any low point fettuccine)
  • 12 oz frozen shrimp, thawed, pre-peeled, cooked, with tails removed
  • 2 Tbsp Land o Lakes light butter or any light butter
  • 2 Tbsp all purpose flour ( I use gold medal)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic or 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed (optional)
  • dash of salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook the Fettuccine using the directions on the back of the package.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and garlic until it makes a roux.  Gradually whisk in milk until it boils and the sauce thickens.
  3. Stir in Parmesan cheese, and stir until it’s to the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more skim milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Add thawed, cooked shrimp and peas. Stir to combine with Alfredo sauce. Cook on low for 3 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl add cooked Fettuccine. Slowly add the Alfredo sauce while tossing the pasta quickly to prevent it from clumping.

Servings: Makes 6 (1 1/2 cup) servings/ 5 Freestyle smart points per serving.

Notes:

You can substitute the carb-nada Fettuccine with regular Fettuccine. Please keep in mind the points may vary based off the brand of ingredients used.
