An experiment

I had some things in the fridge to use up, so I tried a free hand recipe. I made some whole-wheat pasta with boiled green beans. In another pan, I sauteed garlic (from a jar) and onions (frozen in my freezer), then added some butter and low-fat cream cheese. It sounded good enough ...

I drained the pasta into a strainer with precooked shrimp and tasted the sauce. It was smelling yummy and tasted pretty good.

What you see is the final project. The shrimp kind of blends in with the rest of the dish so it's not looking that attractive.
And unfortunately, the food was not as tasty as the sauce taste I had earlier. The whole thing was a little too crunchy -- I guess I didn't cook the pasta and green beans long enough. It also tasted like I might have let the garlic cook for a little too long.
This dish had some issues with timing.
