This is Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Pasta with Shrimp. The ingredients are:
What you see here are the prime ingredients. I will post the recipe below.
I have no brand loyalty when it comes to herbs and spices and, while I rarely have fresh in the house, I can generally reach into my spice cabinet and find pretty much anything, from the most exotic to the most mundane of herbs and spices. Anyway..
PointsPlus™ Value: 4
1 cup(s) vidalia onion(s)
2 clove(s) garlic clove(s), minced (medium)
1 pound(s) shrimp
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup(s) fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried sage
3/4 tsp table salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 item(s) bell pepper(s), Jarred is ok. (medium)
1. Preheat broiler.
2. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 15 minutes or until blackened. Place in a paper bag; fold to close tightly. Let stand 20 minutes. Peel and chop; set aside. (I used a jar of Roasted Red Pepper and skipped this step!)
3. Cook fettuccine according to the package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well. Set aside; keep warm. ( I used Angel Hair Pasta because that was what I had on hand.)
4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic to pan, and cook for 4 minutes or until the onion is tender, stirring frequently. Add shrimp to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes. Add bell peppers and 1/4 cup lemon juice to the pan, and cook for 4 minutes or until the shrimp are done and half of the liquid has evaporated. Add chopped parsley and the next 5 ingredients (through 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper) to the shrimp mixture. Remove pan from heat. (I did not use the butter and simply sprayed my pans with some olive oil)
5. Combine cooked fettuccine and 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large bowl; toss well. Add shrimp mixture, tossing gently to coat.
