Shrimp and Spinach Pasta

A guaranteed hit at dinnertime!

If you’re a pasta fan, spruce up the dish with some flavor-enhancing, uber nutritious ingredients like shrimp and spinach! When you eat pasta by itself, you’re diving into a bowl of carbohydrates. That’s not always a bad thing. Carbs boost your energy levels and come in handy before a tough workout. However, if you want to crank up the nutritional value in your scrumptious bowl of noodles, you can’t go wrong with some protein and vitamin-rich leafy greens.

Plump shrimp offers chewy, protein-packed texture that tastes amazing when paired with flavorful garlic. Spinach leaves are cooked until wilted, delivering a silky texture that simply melts in your mouth. Equally delicious with noodles, this shrimp and spinach pasta is simple, tasty, and a guaranteed hit at dinnertime!

  1. I love the shrimp and spinach with pasta recipe, and so does my husband. We do NOT cook the spinach with the shrimp. We add it just before the shrimp is cooked through. We felt the spinach was too done when we made this the first time. Also, we added red pepper flakes. This meal is so easy and delicious….one of our favorites. Thank you!
