♥ Shrimp in Love Pasta ♥

Shrimp in Love Pasta


I got this one from (original recipe linked)
and I just doubled it, as it is a recipe for 2.

With ingredient changes for my budget:
8 oz linguine
1 lb frozen small shrimp, thawed & drained
1 c frozen spinach, thawed & drained
italian diced tomatoes, drained
8 oz fat free cream cheese


  • Cook linguine as directed on package, until just al dente
  • Meanwhile, heat large skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Add shrimp, tomatoes and spinach.
  • Saute 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through.
  • Soften cream cheese about 30 seconds in the microwave and stir. Repeat until smooth.
  • Add to shrimp mixture and fold in until well blended.
  • Drain pasta; place in large bowl, reserving about 1 c of starchy pasta water incase you nee dto thin your sauce.
  • Add spinach; toss lightly. Stir in shrimp mixture.
  • This was really good, but RICH.
Doubling as I did we ate dinner, sent a lunch, and froze a lunch.
