Spinach Shrimp Spaghetti

love pasta. Whenever anyone would ask me what my favorite food is my answer is PASTA! And then if they have me specify to a style I say Italian or Thai – which are both noodle heavy cuisines.

In this case it’s no surprise to me that if I sit myself down to cook something I go to a pasta dish. Usually I don’t follow recipes and just kind of throw things together – so here is a delicious creamy spinach-shrimp pasta sauce that you will want third-helpings of.

Here’s the list of ingredients and then you can follow the pictures (with short captions) for instructions.

  • garlic
  • onion
  • 3 tomatoes
  • shrimp
  • cream cheese
  • parmesan
  • spinach
  • pasta

Once your pasta of choice is boiled place pasta INTO the sauce and mix. This allows the sauce flavor to get into the pasta.
