Shrimp and Asparagus with Fettucine in Mustard Cream Sauce

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 1 cup

Mustard sauce is an unusually tasty and robust topping for this shrimp and asparagus pasta dish. We cut the fat in the "cream" sauce by thickening it with a slurry made from flour and fat-free milk.

Name: Amount:
uncooked fettucine noodles 4
margarine 2 Tbsp
all-purpose flour 2 Tbsp
fat-free milk 1 cup
pepper 0.16 tsp
Dijon mustard 1 Tbsp
olive oil 1 Tbsp
shrimp, peeled and deveined 0.50
asparagus, fresh trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces 4
garlic clove, minced 1 ea
1:

Cook the fettuccine according to the package directions, omitting salt. Drain.

2:

While the pasta is cooking, melt the margarine in a small nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour; cook until bubbly. Gradually stir in the milk, cooking and stirring until thickened. Add the salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and stir in the mustard.

3:

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Saute the shrimp, asparagus, and garlic over medium heat just until the shrimp are cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes.

4:

In a large warmed bowl, combine the fettuccine, the shrimp mixture, and sauce; toss to mix well. Serve immediately.
