I made this for dinner last Friday night.....It was delicious.  The only thing I changed was to add asparagus when right before I added the shrimp (Matt LOVES asparagus), and I used a little cornstarch and water to thicken the 'sauce'.

Healthified Garlic Shrimp Pasta 

8 oz uncooked multigrain angel hair (capellini) pasta or spaghetti

4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
 
1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
 
3 teaspoons olive oil
 
1 medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
 
1 1/2 lb fresh medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail shells removed
 
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
 
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup Progresso® reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
 
1/4 teaspoon salt
 
1/8 teaspoon pepper
 
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
 
2 tablespoons butter

1. In 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, cook pasta as directed on package. Drain; return to saucepan. Stir in spinach, tomatoes and 2 teaspoons of the oil. Cover to keep warm.
