BackstoryYummy! When Mellissa (Imkatiesmom) shared her recipe for this I knew I was going to make it and what took me so long? So creamy and delicious and I love shrimp so this dish was perfect! I doubled all the ingredients except the spinach to feed my family of 5! Wouldn't you know that my spinach haters, ate every bite without picking out the spinach! I love spinach and I told them it was spinach and to just pick it out but I didn't find any spinach left on their plates! That's a start, I guess! I love the name of this recipe!
- 1/4 lb. linguine, uncooked (I used fettuccine)
- 1 cup cleaned fresh medium shrimp
- 1 cup diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1/2 cup cream cheese spread
- 1-1/2 cup torn cleaned spinach
- splash of lemon juice (my addition)
- garlic salt and cracked black pepper to taste (my addition)
- sprinkle of parmesan cheese (my addition)
- Cook linguine as directed on the package; drain. Place in a large bowl.
- Heat large skillet on medium-high heat. Season shrimp with garlic salt, cracked black pepper and lemon juice if desired. Add shrimp, tomatoes, and cream cheese spread. Cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through and mixture is well blended. Add spinach to pasta and toss lightly. Add shrimp mixture, tossing to coat.
