Garlicky shrimp, buschetta topping, and spinach
tossed with pasta is delicious and ready in
the time it takes to boil the pasta.
This recipe uses ingredients I usually have on
hand for that 'what's for dinner tonight?'
moment. Especially if you don't want to go out.
I always keep a bag of shrimp in the freezer
for quick dinners like this one.
Extra fast when you use a jar of bruschetta topping.
Mince the garlic and saute in oil for 2 minutes.
Measure out the remaining ingredients
so that you can quickly add as needed:
a cup with all the seasonings, 1/2C bruschetta,
1/2C broth, 1/2C cheese, 3T butter.
Add the shrimp, peppers, salt, pepper, red pepper
flakes and saute for 1 minute, then stir in the broth
and cook for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp are
just turning opaque. Don't overcook at this point.
Reduce heat to low and stir in the cheese, then
Stir in the spinach, pasta and butter.
Toss until the spinach wilts and the
butter and cheese melt.
A delicious dinner in under 20 minutes.
