A favorite restaurant in Hawaii serves a fantastic spicy, creamy, garlicky, shrimp, and spinach pasta. I played around with ingredients and finally arrived at this recipe. Easy preparation, easy to make, and just delicious. My family loves it! Great for a company dish as well.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir green onions and garlic in the butter until softened, about 2 minutes. Add frozen shrimp; cook and stir until thawed, about 5 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a bowl.

  • Whisk wine and cornstarch together in a small bowl until smooth. Pour over the green onions and garlic in the skillet. Stir in heavy cream, lime juice, Creole seasoning, sugar, salt, and pepper; simmer until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.

  • Return shrimp to the skillet. Stir in spinach and basil. Cook and stir until shrimp is heated through and spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes. Serve over angel hair pasta.
