Shrimp and Pine Nut Spaghetti

Tonight I tried another recipe from my cooking lite magazine, its called Shrimp and Pine nut Spaghetti.
It was really very simple all i had to do was cook the pasta and while that was cooking I made a roux with milk and flour then I added more milk, parm, a little Dijon and nutmeg.
When the pasta was almost cooked I added the shrimp to the pot and drained once they were cooked through.
I tossed the pasta and the shrimp in the sauce and then served.
This is a dish that must be eaten right away because the sauce doesn't have much butter fat so the pasta quickly absorbs it all.
Well the end result was surprisingly delicious considering it was a LITE Alfredo sauce but we all enjoyed it and I'm sure I will make it again.
