Shrimp with Vodka Sauce

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

Having eaten a few pasta dishes with a vodka sauce over the years while out at restaurants I figured why not try it at home. When the April issue of Cooking Light featured a recipe for it, I figured now was the time.

A lighter, healthier version with shrimp sounded pretty darn delicious. Thankfully we had a HUGE bottle of Costco vodka in our liquor cabinet. Have you seen this vodka? We’ve had this for at least 5 months and have barely made a dent through a few parties and bloody mary’s. They make some really good vodka!

Whole wheat noodles, a lighter cream sauce and nice tender shrimp made for a great dinner. It also just so happened to be one of the last meals we made at the old house.
