Garlic Shrimp Scampi

I have gotten substantially behind on my posts, but in the last few weeks, I did a lot of cooking, so I will be sure to make up for it.  A few weekends ago, I decided to try a shrimp recipe.  I LOVE shrimp, and conveniently, so does my roommate.  We had the most blissful day with a workout, the farmer’s market and then we spent the rest of the day at the beach relaxing and reading.  We topped it off with a delicious homemade dinner and some wine… just the perfect Sunday night date šŸ™‚

We made a shrimp scampi that was cooked in garlic, parsley and white wine and tossed it with some whole-wheat noodles.  Like most of my cooking, it was very simple to make, and didn’t take long at all!

Shrimp Scampi
1.5 lbs shrimp
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 c. white wine
2 tbsp parsley
3 handfuls of spinach
Whole Wheat Spaghetti

Directions:
Heat the olive oil, onions and garlic until the onions are browned

Add the shrimp, cook through (I like to brown them on each side a little)

Add the spinach, white wine and parsley.  Let it simmer for 5-8 minutes…

Toss with noodles and enjoy!
