WEIGHT WATCHERS SPICY SHRIMP SPAGHETTI
So many people love pasta and spaghetti. There are no off-limits foods with the WW program and that includes pastas.
One easy way to bring more health benefits to pasta eating is to buy whole wheat pastas. This recipe has a base of whole wheat spaghetti.
There is only a 1 point difference between regular spaghetti and whole wheat spaghetti, but every point counts!!
I love that this recipe has a spicy kick to it. You can tame it down easily though if you don't like spice!
