Italian Shrimp, Spinach Saute Recipe
2 pounds large shrimp cleaned and deveined tails on
1 pound fresh plum tomatoes cleaned and put through the food processor leaving chunks
3 cloves fresh minced garlic
1/2 cup white wine
springs of fresh parsley
1 bag of fresh spinach around 13 to 16 ounces
Optional additions: sliced peppers, black sliced olives, sliced onions can be added with the tomatoes.
Optional ways to serve this: Cooked Pasta boiled in salt water to package directions. Top a baked potato or serve on a bed of boiled rice instead of pasta. I love this on top of Italian crusty bread as a sandwich.
In a large fry pan, add 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic and spinach. Saute until spinach has wilted. Add the white wine and tomatoes. Cook for around 15 minutes.
In the meantime boil your favorite pasta and set aside.
Add the shrimp to the pan and cook until the shrimp turns pink, around 4 to 5 minutes. Add the fresh herbs and stir.
To serve, place over a bed of brown rice or the other suggestions listed above. You can garnish with fresh cracked black pepper and long shreds of grating cheese if you like.
