Shrimp & Broccoli with Pasta

Shrimp are thought of as a fancy, expensive item, so I enjoy serving it to guests, but I also enjoy serving it to my hubby. This recipe makes any day special, and you don't even need a candle! —Betty Anderson, Cokato, Minnesota

    This is excellent. It is easy to make and you can stir fry while the pasta cooks, so it is very efficient for time.To reduce sodium content, I used unalted butter (have also used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter), used the white wine and 1/4 tsp of salt.I have tried other vegetables such as asparagus and zucchini.My family loves this dish.

    I have not made this recipe, but with the number of calories and sodium, I hesitate to try it. The combination sounds good though (shrimp/broccoli/pasta).
