Shrimp in Love Pasta

I found this recipe many years back and I happened to stumble across it again just recently.  I thought I remembered it being pretty good, so I decided to give it another try.  Besides the fact that something went wrong and my pasta became way too dry - the flavor was still there.  Creamy and delicious but definitely not for anyone counting calories!  It's an indulgence I was willing to run an extra mile for :)

Shrimp in Love Pasta
Adapted from
Printable Recipe 
3/4 lbs angel hair pasta
24 large frozen shrimp, thawed and tails removed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
5 oz cream cheese
1 cup torn baby spinach

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium low heat.  Add shrimp, tomatoes, and cream cheese; cook and stir for 4 to 5 minutes, or until shrimp are done and the mixture is well blended.

Drain pasta and place in large bowl.  Add spinach and mix lightly.  Stir in shrimp mixture.  Enjoy!

What size shrimp do you use? Are they 21-25's or larger?

Jenn said...

Stephen, I use the large shrimp which is 21/25. But you could use any size you wanted to.

Creamy and delicious was all I needed to hear.

The creamy pasta looks delicious, Jenn. I'm not one to count calories anyway.
