Make your sauce and pasta all at once with this fast weeknight pasta dinner recipe. By using the exact amount of water you need to cook the pasta--no colanders here--the starch that cooks off into your pasta water, which you usually drain away, stays in the pot, giving you delectably creamy results.

Tips

Tips: Go for sustainably raised shrimp. Look for fresh or frozen shrimp certified by an independent agency, such as the Marine Stewardship Council. If you can't find certified shrimp, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America; it's more likely to be sustainably caught.

I made this as directed and it came out bland. I had to add marinara sauce to my pasta for it to have more flavor. Read More

I’m sorry I wasted good shrimp on this horrible dish. This was by far the worst recipe I’ve ever made according to my husband lol. Myself and my daughter too thought it was gross. Honestly, if you’re considering this, pass...find another pasta dish. Any pasta dish. Just because it was featured in some article doesn’t mean it’s any good. That was my lesson learned tonight.

This was surprisingly tasty. I wasn't really expecting much but I would definitely make this again - it's easy uses all pantry / freezer stuff (if you use frozen spinach) tastes good and is good for you. I made it pretty much exactly as written but scaled down to two servings. Read More
