Shrimp a la Collette

Shrimp a la Collette...noone ever said I was a title guru!

I was trying to come up with something creative for dinner last night.  Something that would keep us in line with our Mediterranean diet, while still being something that was a little bit unique and of course easy, tasty and filling.

Well, the perfect combination popped into my head since I had some shrimp in the freezer as well as some fresh asparagus in the fridge and a box of whole wheat penne pasta in my pantry.  Thus my creation of Shrimp a la Collette, and let me just tell you, it was totally delicious and super healthy for a number of reasons.

First of all, my healthy fat of choice was first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive oil, and second, I used whole wheat pasta, which has a lower glycemic index (pretty important for those with blood sugar issues).

Enough of all that, let’s get down to the good stuff…..the recipe!

This recipe is the day five (5) dinner recipe of my 7-Day Meal Plan program.  I created the program because after researching the mail plan program provided by recognized authority on diabetes, I was appalled at the ingredients and nutrition values.
