Shrimp Spaghetti in Olive Oil Dressing

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"A light, flavorful, quick, and easy gourmet dinner. My husband was impressed, and I eye-balled most of it, but here's what I came up with. Has a little kick, but not enough to overwhelm the clean flavors of the fresh ingredients."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and return spaghetti to the pot.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir spinach, zucchini, squash, pine nuts, and garlic in hot oil until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl.
  3. Heat another 1 tablespoon olive oil in the same skillet over medium heat; cook and stir shrimp and 2 teaspoons lemon juice until shrimp are bright pink and centers are opaque, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, parsley, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Stir vegetable mixture, shrimp, and olive oil mixture into spaghetti until combined.

Easy to make and sooo good. I did add some parm cheese on top. My husband loved it and said it was a keeper !!!

Only thing I had to do different was use baby beet greens for spinach. Easy.

done recipe just the way it was.

I added a can of fire-roasted tomatoes instead of the spinach, and a small diced shallot with the garlic. AWESOME!!!
