Shrimp Scampi Pasta Salad

Scrumptious shrimp scampi tops this deliciously light and healthy pasta salad.
 


If you haven’t read about my new garlic press, you really should and then go buy one. I’m seriously LOVING this thing!! For this scampi, I pressed 5 cloves in a matter of minutes directly into the pan, then took 2 minutes cleaning the press. Yes. Two minutes. Hot water, a little brush and voila! I can’t say enough good things about it.

Satay Shrimp and Udon Salad

To keep the peanut dressing low fat, I've used PB2 powder in this Satay Shrimp and Udon Salad. You get all the peanut butter flavor without all the fat.



So, S and I are eating a low fat diet.  This means *gasp* no PEANUT BUTTER!  Sacrilege I know.  So, what is one to do when they can't have PB and want some Satay Shrimp and Udon Salad with Peanut Sauce??
