What kind of fettuccine do I use for this Shrimp and Peas Fettuccine Alfredo?

For this fettuccine you may use Al Dente Carba Nada Egg Fettuccine or which is low in points and in carbs. It has only 24 grams carbs, 4 Smart points and 7 grams fiber per 1-1/2 cup serving, making these noodles an excellent alternative to regular pasta for people who are trying to control their carbohydrate intake.

They cook FAST with an al dente texture in about 3 minutes with the tender yet firm texture of Northern-Italian style pasta.

I buy it on Amazon. Click the picture below to order:

 

If you are following WW purple plan you may substitute the Al Dente Carba Nada Egg fettuccine with whole wheat fettuccine since whole wheat pasta is zero points. This substitution will be lower in points.

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz. dry Al Dente Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine or whole wheat fettuccine if you are following the WW purple plan
  • 12 oz frozen shrimp, thawed, pre-peeled, cooked, with tails removed
  • 2 Tbsp Land o Lakes light butter made with canola oil or any light butter
  • 2 Tbsp all purpose flour ( I use gold medal)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic or 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed (optional)
  • dash of salt and pepper, to taste 

 

Directions:

  1. Cook the Fettuccine using the directions on the back of the package.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and garlic until it makes a roux.  Gradually whisk in milk until it boils and the sauce thickens.
  3. Stir in Parmesan cheese, and stir until it’s to the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more skim milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Add thawed, cooked shrimp and peas. Stir to combine with Alfredo sauce. Cook on low for 3 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl add cooked Fettuccine. Slowly add the Alfredo sauce while tossing the pasta quickly to prevent it from clumping.

Servings: Makes 6 (1 and 1/2 cup) servings

GREEN: 6 Smart points per serving

PURPLE: 3 Smart points per serving if using whole wheat fettuccine

I just made this, it was the first recipe I tried since I got my Carba Nada fettucine. It was fantastic! The pasta is definitely more al dente then regular. I cooked mine for closer to 6 minutes than 3. At 3 it was hard still, I checked it every minute after and 6 was al dente but really good. The recipe was so easy and quick, and to both me and my Italian fiance, it tasted every bit as good as regular fattening Fettucine Alfredo. I added a few drops more milk to thin the sauce out just a bit, and I added a generous shake of crushed red pepper.

HI Levon,

Yes, the brand I love using besides the carba nada egg noodles is "Barilla Protein Plus" noodles. You can usually find this brand at most grocery stores.

I have wanted to try the Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine for quite some time but I hesitated because how can any pasta be a good substitute for the "real" thing. After seeing this recipe, I decided it was time to give it a try. I was not disappointed at all. I substituted chicken for the shrimp and it was delicious. I am now a fan of Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine. Thanks for the recipe :)
