I’m sharing my alfredo-like lemon cream sauce today, that incorporates less then half the parmesan cheese of normal alfredo sauce, low fat milk instead of cream, fresh lemon and herbs, and a secret ingredient.

Adding just a touch of low fat cream cheese, know as Neufchatel, helps to thicken the sauce so you get the same luxurious feel as a heavier cream sauce, yet with only a fraction of the fat and calories.

YAY!

This Roasted Shrimp Pasta with Lemon Cream Sauce is not only lighter than normal, it’s completely irresistible.

I roasted shrimp in the oven while making the pasta and lemon cream sauce. Yes, I could have sautéed the shrimp in the skillet. But honestly, roasted shrimp just tastes better than seared shrimp. Trust me.

Once the pasta has had a few minutes to bathe in the lemon cream sauce, I tossed in the gorgeous pink roasted shrimp.

    I made this recipe tonight! It was yummy! Except when I put the pasta in the sause the pasta absorbed a lot of the sauce so it was a little dry. Any suggestions? Ty!!

      Hey Krista! Glad you liked it. Next time, try adding a little extra milk if needed.

    Gahhfdjska;fkldsagdas well I just made my grocery and dinner list for the week and it’s changing.  Thanks for the healthier sauce, I like to enjoy a nice large portion of my dinners.  I never buy milk, just almond or cashew because of it’s awesome shelf life so I’ll use that and maybe a little yogurt at the end if it’s dry.  THANKS!

    This looks absolutely fantastic. However my husband is on a 1200 calorie diet, so Is there anyone who knows what the calories would be for a serving size for this?

    I made this recipe last night for dinner and it turned out amazing. My boyfriend and I gobbled it up so fast. I added a 1/2 cup of romano cheese and 1/3 cup heavy cream to the sauce to make it a little thicker but I followed everything else exactly as it’s listed. I know this takes away from some of the “light and healthy” aspect of the dish, but I think it added a little extra oomph to the flavor.  Also, I used rice pilaf instead of pasta and it worked beautifully! Thank you for sharing this recipe :)
