 Sometimes a person just needs pasta! Enjoy! This is good!

Shrimp Linguine

8 oz whole wheat linguine
some olive oil
3/4 of a lb of frozen shrimp
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t red pepper flakes
1 can of diced tomatoes ( I used no salt with basil)
1 red pepper sliced (you could use green or yellow-I had red)
2 lemons
a pkg of fresh spinach
grated Parmesan

Prepare pasta according to pkg directions

Heat oil in large frying pan and add the frozen shrimp and cook until shrimp are turning pink (about 2 minutes) Remove shrimp to a bowl and squeeze the juice of one lemon over them.

Add garlic, red pepper and red pepper flakes and sauté for a couple minutes, add the spinach until it wilts and then throw the shrimp back in to warm.

Drain the pasta and add to the frying pan and toss to coat. Serve with a good baguette, squeeze more lemon over each dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. YUM!

Makes two BIG portions :-)


  1. Your pictures make everything look so good. I never made anything that looks this good. What happened from March 3rd till March11th? Did you make that many cuban potatoes?

  2. Sometimes we're just doing leftovers or I'm too lazy to take a picture :-)
