 This dish is simple and simply delicious! It was a great alternative for the spaghetti that I have anywhere from once a week to every other week. If you are looking for a slightly healthy meal (carbs can be healthy, right!?) please, do yourself a favor and whip this up for your next meal!

NEEDED INGREDIENTS

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 Tbsp Butter

4 Cloves of Garlic

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

1/2 lb. shrimp (deveined–get some fresh at your local grocer’s meat dept.)

Fettuccine (I used about 3/4 of the box)

1 Can Diced Tomatoes

Handful of Fresh Parsley

PREP

Thoroughly rinse shrimp and set aside.

Mince garlic

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add fettuccine. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

In a skillet on medium heat, combine butter, olive oil and add salt and pepper. Once the butter is melted, add minced garlic and shrimp. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the skillet then set aside.

In the same skillet add your can of tomatoes (including the juice) and bring to a simmer. Once the sauce thickens (it will only be slightly) add the cooked fettuccine and shrimp.
