Does it get any simpler than this?

Sautéed Shrimp and Vermicelli
Weight Watchers Five Ingredient 15 Minute Cookbook Copyright 2005

2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
1 (0.7 –ounce) package dry Italian Dressing mix
¾ pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
4 cups hot cooked vermicelli (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta), cooked without salt or fat I salted the water

1. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; stir in dressing mix. Add shrimp; sauté 5 minutes or until shrimp are done. (I added some pasta water to the shrimp mix to make it 'saucier'. ) Combine shrimp mixture and pasta; toss well.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size 1 cup). 7 points per serving. 320 calories.

It couldn't be any easier and this was really, really good. But, come on, 7 pts per cup, 320 calories? It's hard to stop at one cup. Anything can be a WW recipe if you only eat a small portion, I guess. But trust me, this tastes so good, it will be hard to stop eating it.
