This is a great recipe that provides both carbohydrates and protein, adding in just a small amount of healthy fat from the olive oil.

8 ounces dry pasta (cooked to desired tenderness)
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 sweet onion, sliced
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sliced broccoli
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium tomatoes, sliced in quarters
1 pound cooked shrimp, peeled
Fresh basil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Sprinkling of Parmesan cheese

In a food processor mix together the garlic, onion, celery, broccoli, and Italian seasoning. Pulse blend until well mixed and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, adding the blended mixture while stirring constantly. Cook for 3-5 minutes and then toss with pre-cooked pasta, shrimp, and sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle basil, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese on top.
