Ingredients

  • pound shrimp peeled and deveined I used 16/ 20 count
  • pound linguine or pasta of your choice
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped finely chopped
  • 2 cups spinach or greens of your choice
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil more as needed
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes or more if you like spicy
  • grated romano cheese to taste garnish

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to instructions on box.
    As the pasta is cooking begin preparing your saute dish by heating a large skillet on high heat
  • Start by adding olive oil to a pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped garlic and shrimp. Turn down heat to medium and stir shrimp around so neither the shrimp or garlic burn.
  • Remove the shrimp and most of the garlic from the pan when shrimp are about ¾ of the way cooked (about 2 minutes). Set aside until they are needed.
  • After removing the shrimp and the garlic, add the mushrooms to the pan, along with additional olive oil if necessary and saute for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the spinach to the pan and stir until they begin to wilt.
  • Add the sauteed shrimp and garlic back to pan. Season with crushed red pepper, sea salt and pepper to taste. Toss the mixture and allow shrimp to become fully cooked.
    *Add more olive oil if necessary (or chicken stock)
  • Drain the cooked pasta and toss the pasta with the shrimp and spinach saute.
    *Add additional olive oil or stock if its too dry
  • Serve immediately with grated Romano cheese.
