Today’s Menu: Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Pasta Dinner Seafood Scampi w/ Whole Grain Bread

For dinner this evening I had Seafood Scampi. For the pasta scampi base I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Pasta Dinners Mix. I also used medium size Shelled and Tailless Shrimp that I boiled the Shrimp for about 4 minutes and seasoned it with Old Bay Seasoning. While at the same time I lightly fried my Scallops. I fried them about 3 minutes per side seasoning them with Sea Salt and ground Black Pepper. I then cooked the Pasta by the box directions and added in the Shrimp and Scallops as the Pasta was finishing up. I left the info and details at the bottom of the post on the Zatarain’s. The Scampi came out fantastic! Great flavor, seasoned just right with a bit of heat! Real easy to make and the Zatarains Scampi Pasta is only 100 calories and 21 carbs. I left the Zatarain’s product description and instructions at the end of the post. I had a side of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Smart Ones dessert  Fudge Brownie Chocolate Sundae.
