Shrimp Scampi Pasta

So last night for dinner I made Shrimp Scampi Pasta and I have to admit it turned out way better than any restaurant I have been to that served this dish. The kids devoured it and my hubby said it was very good. But then again, he could just be trying to please me!  :) This is one of my favorite dishes but I haven't ever made it because it is so fattening!  ugh!  So I am wondering if anyone knows something that can be substituted for heavy cream. I tried to make it as less fattening as I could with whole wheat noodles, half the butter, and only used olive oil, but it still has the heavy cream. Any suggestions?

Sounds good! You're good to try to make it less fattening, but I have no idea what to substitute heavy cream with. As long as you don't eat it every week I think you're okay. You'll have to post your recipe.
Too bad we missed you while you were here last month. Life is so busy! Glad to hear things are going good.

Girlfriend just eat it the way it is suppose to be. Its not like you make it all the time. Sometimes we need to induluge it makes life bearable!! So my suggestion is to pretend it is half the fat and cream. Life should be "delicious" love ya bunches :)
