Succotash Shrimp Pasta

     Who doesn't love Shrimp, in fact I love it in all forms... and I especially love that it is so low in calorie for all that wonderful flavor!  (I can easily wolf down a half pound without blinking an eye...I digress)  Recently, I had many of my favorites lurking in my fridge, hence Succotash Shrimp Pasta was conceived.  Each of the HUGE 6 portions are only 302 calories, 13g net carbs and 38g protein...and you did pick up the part where Pasta is part of the equation here, right...!?  These hearty servings are so macro friendly, that it still leaves room for extra sauces as desired.  #winning

Ingredients for 6 large servings~
1 Roma Tomato, diced and drained on paper towel (several hours if possible)
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium diced Yellow Onion
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh Garlic
Dash Cayenne Pepper
Dash Salt
1 pound fresh sliced Mushrooms
1 pound steamed Edamame
2 pounds peeled raw Shrimp
1 medium cooked Corn on the Cob, shaved
2 slices cooked Turkey Bacon, crumbled
8oz low carb Thin Slim Foods Pasta (

     Dice Tomato and drain on folded paper towel, several hours if possible, set aside.  Heat EVOO in skillet along with Onion, Garlic, Cayenne and Salt til golden brown.  Add Mushrooms til cooked thru, can add lid to speed up cooking time.  Stir in cooked Edamame and raw Shrimp til Shrimp becomes pink and cooked through, then add Corn and Bacon.  Meanwhile, cook Pasta according to directions, drain and stir into Shrimp mixture.  Garnish with diced Tomato, season as desired.  These macros are friendly enough to manage another 100 calories of your favorite sauce stirred in to each serving, a Peanut or Asian sauce would be my recommendation.  Enjoy  :)
