The other night I was feeling overwhelmed thinking about dinner. I had been in the kitchen all day, but none of what I had cooked or baked was going to pass for “dinner.” As I rummaged through the kitchen, it came to me. Shrimp out of the freezer + pasta from the pantry + spinach from the fridge = DINNER! Easy-peasy, fast and so good! My daughter actually ate spinach and said, “This is the best thing you’ve ever made!”

- If your shrimp is frozen, as mine was, just throw them into a colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 2 minutes to defrost before cooking. Keep in mind, the shrimp should be raw, not cooked frozen shrimp.
