Spinach Tomato Shrimp Pasta - The best bowl of garlicky sautéed ingredients seasoned with a bit of spice, and tossed with tender spaghetti. An easy weeknight dinner in under 15 minutes!

This was my first time having shrimp pasta and I really have no idea what I’ve been waiting for all this time.

To be honest I was a little afraid going in, because seafood and pasta just didn’t seem right to me, but boy was I wrong!

What a revolutionary combo this was!

The recipe makes 6 cups worth of pasta, and I ate like 3 cups one go, that’s how good it turned out.
