Shrimp and Spinach Pasta

If you're looking for a quick, delicious, and crowd-pleasing meal to feed your family, I have the perfect recipe for you.  This dish combines pasta and spinach in a wonderful garlic and butter sauce.  It'll instantly become a family favorite!

Start off by boiling your favorite pasta and salting the water.  If you can, buy already peeled shrimp.  This saves you time.  While the water for the pasta is boiling, add a generous amount of olive oil to the pan.  Put the shrimp in the pan and season them with your favorite seasonings.  I also like to put in some butter and fresh garlic cloves to give extra flavor.  Heat on high and add in as much spinach as you want. I mix everything together and cook until the spinach is wilted and the shrimp is nice and pink.  This process is usually about 5 minutes or so.

Once the pasta is cooked and drained, pour the pasta back into the pot and add the shrimp and sauce mixture into the pasta.  Feel free to substitute or add whatever you'd like into the dish.  Be creative and make it your own.  I usually add cherry tomatoes, but I didn't have any on hand tonight.  Add pepper, sausage, bacon, or anything else!

You'll be greeted with a restaurant style meal that you and your family can enjoy in your own home.
