Ooooooh, let's count the calories!
Lately, we've been leaving off the bread, but I wanted to take it a step further last night. My husband boiled some fettucini, sauteed some shrimp, and warmed up some Alfredo sauce. I reached into the freezer and amazingly pulled out a store-brand bag of frozen Italian vegetable mix of squash, zucchini, butter beans, red bell peppers, etc., and made them according to the package directions for using a stovetop. I seasoned them with an Italian blend from my spice cabinet afterward. So . . . when it came time to eat, I scooped very little (probably 3/4 of a cup) of the fettucini on my salad-sized plate, about 1/2 dozen shrimp, and a hearty helping of the Italian vegetable blend, totally ignoring the Alfredo sauce.
