HG's Super-Delicious Shrimp Scampi with Fettuccine

Good Year Shrimp!
Planning a nice night in? Wanna indulge just for the heck of it? Treat yourself to a shrimp-tastically fancy meal for WAAAY fewer calories than if you made it with traditional ingredients or (ACK!) ordered it at a restaurant. It's our Super-Delicious Shrimp Scampi with Fettuccine!

1 small lemon
2 packages House Foods Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. chopped garlic
8 oz. raw shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
1 plum tomato, chopped
2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
Optional: salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, chopped parsley

Cut lemon in half, and squeeze the juice from one half into a small dish; remove any seeds, and set aside. Cut the other half into wedges, and set those aside as well.

Use a strainer to rinse and drain shirataki noodles well. Pat dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave for 1 minute. Drain excess liquid. Dry as thoroughly as possible, using paper towels. Cut noodles up a bit, using kitchen shears if you've got 'em. Set aside.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray (butter flavored, if you've got it) to medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until softened, 2 - 3 minutes.

Add shrimp and tomato. Stirring occasionally, cook until shrimp are opaque, about 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and continue to cook and stir for 1 minute.

Raise heat to medium high, add shirataki noodles, and mix well. Continue to cook for 1 - 2 minutes, until entire dish is hot and shrimp are cooked through. Add butter and stir.

Plate (or bowl!) your scampi, and top each serving with 1 tsp. Parm-style topping. Garnish with lemon wedges and, if you like, season to taste with optional ingredients. Enjoy!

Scram, Scampi!
Most humans can't say they're impervious to the temptation of buttery shrimp and pasta, can they? Um, not likely. Shrimp scampi tastes AMAZING, but that shouldn't surprise you. When we think of the stuff, we imagine a slew of shrimp bathing in loads of melted butter and resting comfortably on a huge bed of starchy pasta. This entrée is TROUBLE! A typical portion has more than 800 calories and 40 fat grams. And some restaurant versions are WAY worse. Check out The Cheesecake Factory's offering with its 1,195-calorie price tag. HOLY HIGH-CALORIE CRUSTACEANS, BATMAN! Regardless, we all want to eat delicious things. And that is why we've made over this meal -- to keep good people like you from bad amounts of butter and noodles. We love you, HG subscribers!
