Tagliatelle with Shrimps and Baby Clams..low fat…low salt…dairy free?


I have put myself on a strict healthful diet, no refined foods, no butter, measured fat. I am eating lots and lots of veggies, light proteins (fish, shellfish, poultry), and unrefined carbs high in fibre. I want to cleanse my liver from my summer travels and eating what I wanted, rather than what was good for me. This pasta dish is one of my answers to what’s for healthy dinner. It’s full of flavour and actually nutritious. It cooks up fast and so comforting. Tastes like restaurant quality, only better.

Two of the products used in this dish are Regina Molisana Baby Clams and Filotea Tagliatelle (found at Costco not sure where else). The baby clams have no additives and packed in their own juice. The pasta is just like fresh made, tender and cooks up in 3 minutes. Try to find these products if you can, they are worth the price.
