My amazing (but simple) dinner last night

When I was leaving work yesterday, I was craving pasta.

In the past, that would mean making a box of pasta with lots of butter and Parmesan cheese and stuffing myself.

Last night, I was determined to have my pasta, but keep it healthy and tasty.

I went out and bought linguine, shrimp, and spinach.

I weighed one serving of the linguine and cooked it.

While that was cooking, I sauteed the shrimp in a little olive oil, lots of minced garlic, my favorite herb mix, and pepper.  I then removed that from the pan and sauteed the spinach in some olive oil, salt and pepper.

When everything was done cooking, I put all three in the pan and tossed them together and then sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top.

It tasted AMAZING!  I wish I took a picture!

I have some leftover shrimp and spinach so I think I know what I’m having tonight…
