Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta


This was a great recipe. I just put a little bit of personal touch to it. I doubled the amount of sauce beause when cooking the dish I decided that for me, I needed more sauce. Also I used light butter to cut the fat, add a touch of garlic, a bit of lemon juice, and some asparagus, it makes a yummy dish I can eat even on my diet.

  • 1 1/2 lbs of medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (or 1 pound boneless chicken, chopped)
