Another fix would be to install a column to support the roof. Installing the column would require a stable footing below, (a concrete pad) and lifting the roof to the proper slope and affixing the colum to the sub-fascia board on the eave. The column method would provide the best support over time and combat heavy snow loads, however a "post" would be in the walk path most likely.
The minimum pitch for an asphalt roof for Asphalt shingles is 2/12 or more as long as you use at least one layer of ice and water shield and one layer of synthethic felt under the architectural shingles. I would never use a three tab shingle on this low pitch roof. Below 2/12 pitch, I would use either an EDPM Membrane or the Resisto 2 0r 3 ply roll roofing membrane system.
