I’m not sure if we’ve made this clear yet or not, but I’m really obsessed with cooking, whenever it doesn’t take forever! l love simple meals that you can dress up and make a little gourmet, without the time that that typically takes! This meal is one of those meals for me – it takes two pans but neither have to be heavily watched! Sweet relief! I can tidy up as I’m cooking and that makes me one happy camper. I hope y’all love this meal as much as I do! Happy Thursday, newlyweds!
- Boil water for the penne. Add a few shakes of salt so that the noodles don’t sit to the pan. After boiling, add noodles and cook until al dente.
- After you start the boiling water, in a separate pan, add EVOO and minced garlic cloves over medium heat for about a minute. After that, add shrimp, red pepper flakes, basil, red onion and squeeze the lemon over top. Cook until shrimp is pink (usually 5-8 minutes). Then add spinach and cook for another 3 minutes.
- After that, drain the noodles and prepare the plates! I like to add my shrimp over top of the bed of penne and garnish with an extra bit of basil on top!
- Enjoy with something sweet to drink and your cute husband/wife across the table :)
