Shrimp (Scallop) Fettuccini

This recipe was given to my father-in-law by a physical trainer as part of his diet to help lose weight & get fit. When I made it we liked the lightness of the meal but it was also filling. So now I try to make this dish at least once a week or so. I hope you share this & everyone enjoys it as much as we do.


2 tablespoon olive oil
3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 medium green pepper, julienned
1 medium yellow pepper, julienned
1 medium orange pepper, julienned
