Happy Friday people!  The weekend is here again!  A couple nights ago I whipped up this little number, like literally it only takes about 15 min. to prep and about 25 min. to cook.  This dish is whole wheat penne with shrimp and ricotta.  I like this dish because you get all the yummy deliciousness of a great pasta dish without all the calories.  When you toss hot pasta with ricotta cheese it creates a creamy sauce that's much like alfredo, but with half the fat, genius right!?  Here's the recipe, ENJOY!

What you'll need:
12 oz. bag of shrimp, deveined
8 oz whole wheat penne
1 small onion, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can chopped tomatos
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
Salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste

What you do:
Heat oven to 450
Cook pasta according to the package directions
Once pasta is done, drain and add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix together.
Once mixed, pour into a large baking dish and pop into the oven and TA-DA!  Dinnertime!

Pair this with a little side of greens and you got yourself one yummy and guilt-free dish :)
