Shrimp Pasta Primavera


The lemon juice gives this a distinctive flavor while complementing the shrimp nicely. You can use either cooked or uncooked shrimp. If using pre-cooked, thaw and add along with the sauce. The shrimp has a fairly large amount of natural sodium, but there is very little in the rest of the ingredients, so the total is reasonable.

12 oz Shrimp,Peeled And Deveined
6 oz Fettuccine
1 T Olive Oil
2 c Broccoli Florets
4 oz Fresh Green Beans
1/2 c Red Bell Peppers,Cut In Strips
1/4 c Lemon Juice
1/2 c Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 T Sugar
1 T Cornstarch

Cook fettucini according to package directions and drain. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add vegetables and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in shrimp and continue to cook for 4 more minutes. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir into shrimp mixture. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cooked fettucini and cook until heated through.
