Cook's Notes

This creamy Tuscan Shrimp pasta recipe is restaurant quality. The irresistible combination of shrimp, spinach, and tomatoes is smothered in a rich, creamy garlic butter sauce. On the table from start to finish in just 20 minutes, this recipe is a keeper! Choose your favorite variety of Cape Covelle Raw Shrimp. We saved time by selecting the peeled & deveined although you can easily cook this recipe with the tail-on for a dramatic affect. Choose your favorite size shrimp, too; we selected the 40/60. Shrimp is quick and easy to prepare and requires very little cooking time. Your family will think you worked in the kitchen all day to create this gourmet meal when in fact the shrimp takes less than 4 minutes to cook. The 8 ounces of spinach seems like a lot but trust us, it cooks down quickly into the creamy Tuscan sauce. Just continue to fold the shrimp into the sauce for 2 minutes. If you prefer extra sauce, you can add another cup of heavy whipping cream to this recipe and another dash of Acme Fresh Market Italian seasoning. Instead of heavy whipping cream, you can substitute Half & Half or milk for a lighter sauce. Choose your favorite pasta for this recipe. We choose Food Club Linguine because the size and structure holds the sauce well. To keep your pasta from sticking, you can add a splash of olive oil. However the pasta and shrimp sauce should be done cooking at about the same time in this recipe. Add freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a splash of lemon juice, if desired.
