Serves: 4 This low fat shrimp pasta salad is perfect for lunch but can also be enjoyed as a light supper. With less than 300 calories in each serving, you will struggle to find a more satisfying diet recipe.
Step 1 - Cook 6 ounces of penne pasta according to the packaging instructions, adding 1 cup of frozen peas to the pasta water after 2 minutes of cooking.
Step 2 - Once cooked, drain and cool the pasta and peas.
Step 3 - Cut 6 ounces of green beans into pieces, place them into a pan of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
Step 4 - Drain the green beans before plunging into a bowl of iced water. This is to retain the colour and to stop the cooking process. Once you have done this, you should drain the beans for a second time.
Step 5 - Add 1 pound of cooked shrimp to a bowl, along with two thinly sliced vine ripe tomatoes, the cooked pasta, peas and green beans.
Step 6 - To make the dressing, combine ¼ cup of low fat mayonnaise, ¼ cup of low fat yoghurt, 1 teaspoon of dried Herbes de Provence and some freshly ground black pepper. Pour the dressing over the shrimp salad and mix well.
Step 7 - Serve in a bowl with a wedge of lemon. We recommend combining this fresh and tasty salad with Jade Emperor, a pure and stimulant-free green tea supplement that can naturally speed up the weight loss process.
