BBQ Shrimp Pasta – 12 WW Points
This was really yummy. I would recommend using a sweeter sauce like KC Masterpiece (that’s what I used) as opposed to a vinegar-based sauce for this recipe. KC Masterpiece was just the right consistency. Be prepared for a little bit of heat, depending on the brand of sauce you use. For those of us who are not used to eating mass amounts of BBQ sauce at once, this was quite a shock to the palate, but it was a good shock.
