It is lactose free! I can bake or spread it on some toast and not worry about having to camp out in the bathroom (yes, tmi...again...last time I promise). I am very thankful to Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread because tonight, I was able to enjoy one of my favorite meals...
...Shrimp Scampi! This was such an easy meal and it literally took me about 30 minutes to get it all together. I decided to include the recipe for a couple of my Facebook.
This came from Southern Living's Dinner in a Dish cookbook.
1lb peeled, large raw shrimp (I didn't use raw. I prefer the pre-cooked shrimp)
1 (12-oz) angel hair pasta
1/2 cup of butter or in my case Smart Balance Buttery Spread :)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion (I used 1/2 an onion)
3 garlic cloves, finely-chopped
1 tsp. salt-free Italian-herb seasoning (I used way more than just 1 tsp. I sprinkled a good bit in there!)
1 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice ( I used 1 lemon, but didn't squeeze it all the way)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (didn't use that...not tummy friendly)
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (I didn't use fresh parsley and it was still good!)
1. Prepare your pasta according to package.
2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic, and saute 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in Italian-herb seasoning.
3. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp and cook stirring occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Toss shrimp mixture with pasta, and sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
It was not overwhelmingly garlicky and it was a light meal. Try it and tell me how it turns out! I think the only thing I will add next time is some salt and pepper but other than that it was delish!
I'm on the look out for more lactose free products! Let me know if you know of any and when I find them I'll make sure to share.
