Freezer Alfredo – Light

When we move I’m very excited about getting a fresh start and paying more attention to what we buy. I have talked about our desires to consume less as far as “stuff” but I would like to add groceries to this too.  It’s so easy to suddenly have a junk drawer full of snack foods, and a freezer full of…umm…what is that? You know you have crap in your freezer that you havent seen in 6 months!

We also end up with lots of odd spices and packets, and odd canned goods. I have big plans to work out a very tight (but functional) budget, especially with wedding coming up and my income being a little iffy. It just gives us such good vibes when we think of all the things we get to try to do better.

So back to the freezer. We are trying to eat everything in the freezer before Mr. Gaunt moves in with his mom for a month. I highly doubt she wants our old frozen food crowding up her space.

So without further rambling, Freezer Alfredo!

Ingredients:

-Whole Wheat pasta (two different kinds, as you didn’t have enough of one kind. It’s like a rainbow of carbs in your mouth!)

-Frozen Shrimp (that you think tasted a little freezer burned, but your boyfriend didn’t so he ate it all)

-Turkey Bacon (because you were apparently going to make big breakfasts on the weekends, only didn’t)

-Asparagus (this is actually fresh, but you could have easily used one of the many bags of frozen veggies in the freezer too)

-1 Can of Light Alfredo Sauce (store-bought. Come on people, you don’t have time to make alfredo at home.  Especially not one that only has 60 calories for 1/4 cup!)

Directions:

-Fry up shrimp in a pan with some olive oil.  Microwave turkey bacon, cut up, and add to the shrimp. Add a little water (1/4 cup) and toss in chopped up Asparagus, cover and let it cook for a 5-7 minutes until the water is pretty much gone and the Asparagus is bright green. Now dump your jar of Alfredo in….lol. Add Pasta (oh yeah you should have been cooking your pasta during all of this). Mix all together in a big pot and serve!

Easy Peasy. Mr. Gaunt loved it…lol, he always likes the dishes I’m mildly embarrassed by.
