Shrimp Alfredo Pasta
Using evaporated milk instead of cream gives this dish a creamy feel
without the fat.

1/2 cup red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 can Evaporated Milk
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and cooked
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook red bell
pepper and garlic for 30 seconds or until softened slightly. Add to
