Angel-Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Greens

Angel-Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Greens

Balance out carbs with shrimp: A dozen shrimp is just 85 calories, plus shrimp is packed with protein and selenium, a powerful antioxidant. Dovetailing Tip: Prepare an extra 1 1/4 pound of shrimp by peeling and deveining them for Healthy Chipotle Beer and Butter Shrimp Foil Pack on day 3.

Calories per serving: 483

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pint cherry tomato, halved
kosher salt
8 ounces angel-hair pasta
8 cups chopped escarole, kale and/or swiss chard
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs, adding the greens to the water. Drain and rinse under cold water; transfer to a large bowl.

Combine the shrimp, red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, about 3 minutes per side. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp mixture to the bowl with the pasta along with the basil and lemon zest and juice; toss to combine.
