CHEESE SHRIMP PENNE PASTA & SPINACH

Ingredients:

Penne Pasta, use one package of 8-ounces.
Peeled and deveined Shrimp, I used one pound.
3 Cups.Of Fresh Chopped Spinach, Arugula or Kale leaves.
1 Cup.Of Swiss or Mozzarella Cheese.
3 minced Garlic cloves.
Seasonings; Salt, black Pepper & Garlic Salt, to ur liking.
2 large spoons of Butter
1 large spoon of sunflower Oil.

Directions:

Step 1 – To begin, you need to prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Add the shrimp to the pasta water during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Step 2 – And cook until the meat is no longer pink. Remove everything except 1 cup of water to prepare for the next step. Keep the pasta and shrimp heated.
Step 3 – After that, you need to heat the oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. When the butter has melted, add the pasta to the pan. Toss everything together. Season to your liking and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened.
Step 4 – Next, add the spinach and simmer for 1 minute, or until wilted (you may need to add an additional 13 cup of water here to steam/cook the spinach). Finally, add the shrimp and cheese.
Step 5 – Gently stir until the cheese is melted. Don’t overcook the food. Season with other spices to taste. Garnish with chopped cilantro, if desired.

Enjoy!
