This is the light cheese sauce from the vitamix recipe book served over macaroni. 1/2 cup sauce and 1 cup macaroni was 493 calories.

Recipe is from this book.

Spicy Shrimp and Penne with Puttanesca Sauce

1 lb penne pasta
kosher salt (for pasta water – optional)
1/4 cup olive oil
8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tsps crushed red pepper flakes
8 to 10 whole anchovy fillets
1/2 cup cracked, pitted kalamata, coarsely chopped
3 tsps capers, drained and coarsely chopped
1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
1 lb of 24 count shrimp, peeled, devined and tails removed
2 handfulls fresh flat-leaf parsely leaves, finely chopped

Cook pasta according package directions.

While the pasta cooks, heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, gralic, red pepper flakes and anchovies. Break up the anchovies with the back of a spoon until they melt into the oil.

Add the olives, capers and tomatoes. Bring the sauce to a bubble and add the shrimp, scattering them in a single layer.

Cover the pan to cook the shrimp, about 4 minutes or until they turn pink.

Uncover the pan and add the parsley. Toss and adjust seasonings to taste.

Add the drained pasta, toss to combine and serve hot.

This is the first time I’ve cooked with anchovies. Couldn’t even tell they were in the finished product. The overall spiciness was low to meduim, so adjust the red peppers accordingly. I would make this again, maybe with a little more red pepper and a little less olives.
