Shrimp Primavera

I was in the mood for some kind of shrimp pasta, but all the recipes I was finding either didn't quite sound like what I wanted, or else they were far too complicated to cook quickly. So, I improvised and made up my own recipe!
1/2 box thin spaghetti (wheat pasta would be healthier, but I used what I had, which was just regular spaghetti!)
1 pound shrimp, deveined & peeled
1/2 c. onion
1 can petite diced onions w/garlic & olive oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
Salt/Pepper to taste

1. Cook pasta as directed.

2. Cook onions in olive oil in a skillet.

3. Once browned, add shrimp & cook through (I used pre-cooked, frozen shrimp, so I just had to heat them through!)

4. Add can of tomatoes & simmer for about 10 minutes

5. Add parmesan cheese to the mixture at the very end & stir well to make a creamy tomato sauce.

6. Toss with pasta & serve!

This makes 4 servings with a WW points value of about 7.5 (depends on the exact ingredients you use, that's what I came up with for mine!). It was super good & even the husband said he'd definately have it again!

YUM! I made pasta tonight too - just sauteed some butter, olive oil, and garlic, threw in the cooked pasta (whole wheat - I actually like it better) and some steamed broccoli, then topped with grated parm. Delicious and I was proud of myself for eating healthy. :) Next time I do that I'll add shrimp too!
