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

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!
