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 pasta. 

One easy way to bring more health benefits to pasta eating is to buy whole wheat pasta. This recipe has a base of whole wheat spaghetti.

There is only a small 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!

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR WW SHRIMP SPAGHETTI

This is an easy meal to throw together. I like to keep bags of frozen shrimp on hand in the freezer, so I usually have most of the ingredients needed on hand…except the cherry tomatoes!
