Lemony shrimp and fresh spinach create a lovely pasta dish. Great for company or for everyday meals.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz linguine, uncooked
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 scallions, green parts included, chopped
  • 1 lb shrimp, uncooked, shells and tails removed
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, grated
  • 1/2 tsp tabasco sauce
  • 2 Tbs tomato paste
  • 1 lb fresh spinach

Directions

  • Cook pasta in rapidly boiling water until done. Drain.
  • Wash spinach thoroughly and remove stems. Chop into 2-inch (5cm) pieces or, if the leaves are fairly small, leave them whole.
  • Heat oil in a 12-inch (30cm) skillet. Add onions and garlic and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and scallions. Stir fry for 3 minutes, until the shrimp are pink.
  • Add lemon juice, wine, lemon zest, tabasco sauce and tomato paste. Stir to combine all the ingredients. Add spinach leaves.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2–5 minutes more, just until the spinach leaves wilt and a sauce develops from the cooking spinach and the shrimp.
  • Transfer pasta into the skillet and toss to combine.
