Shrimp and veggies over ww pastaPosted: August 11, 2010
This is a great meal to help clean out your fridge or to use what you have on hand if you need a meal last minute. This can be done with chicken or shrimp and your preferred veggies. I just toss it all in a ziploc and marinate for 30 mins, saute and toss with pasta. Meal in a few minutes. While the mixture marinates, I make our salads and everything is on the table in about 45 mins..marinate less if in a time crunch!
**This is a rough estimate of ingredients and time as I just throw in what is on hand and keep an eye on cooking. Enjoy tossing in your own favorites***
1 lbs shrimp or 2-3 chicken breasts cubed
Favorite veggies to saute/stir fry:
1/2 cup edamame
1 orange pepper thinly sliced
grape tomatoes sliced in half
12-15 spears of asparagus chopped
1 small onion thinly sliced
1 tbsp minced garlic
2-3 tbsp dry white wine
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried basil or oregano
s and p to taste
evoo for pan
favorite pasta or rice to toss with-we like ww angel hair pasta
Toss all ingredients thru s and p in a ziploc. Toss well and let sit for up to 30 mins. While in marinade, start pasta water. When ready, heat oil in pan. Once warm, toss in ziploc ingredients and cook until no juices left (about 10-15 mins on med/high heat), but a thick glaze remains. Cook pasta.
Once pasta is done and shrimp/chicken mixture is a couple minutes from being done, toss in pasta and mix. Coat the pasta or rice well.
Serve immediately warm.
