Shrimp and Roasted Vegetable Alfredo

An easy Sunday dinner. Serves 2.

Vegetables - I used 1/2 bell pepper, 3 scallions and 6 mushrooms for this recipe
Olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 lb. peeled, de-veined raw shrimp
4-5 oz. whole wheat pasta
2 oz. lite cream cheese
2/3 cup skim milk
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

First, drizzle the veggies with some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them for 20-3o minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Sautee 1 tsp. olive oil and the garlic over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and roasted vegetables and sautee until the shrimp are no longer transluscent. Transfer the mixture to a bowl.

In the same saucepan, over low heat, add the cream cheese and milk. Whisk the milk and cheese together continuously. Once fully incorporated, add the freshly grated parmesan cheese. Add the shrimp and vegetable mixture back to the cheesy mixture and toss to coat.

Serve with the whole wheat pasta.
