I made this last night....

 I tried this recipe from the Betty Crocker site last night.  It was wonderful!  Of course, I made just a couple slight changes.....Matt loves asparagus, so I added a little of that, and I thickened up the "sauce" with some cornstarch and water.....that's it.  It only took about half an hour to make, too!

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
 
1/2 cup dry white wine or Progresso® reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
 
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.

2. While pasta is cooking, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 1 minute. Add shrimp, garlic and pepper flakes; cook and stir 2 minutes.

3. Stir in wine, broth, salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes or until shrimp are pink and firm. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and butter until butter is melted. Add shrimp mixture to pasta mixture in saucepan; toss to mix.

That looks delicious! I wouldn't be able to make it though :( my husband hates shrimp and my dd is allergic, so it would just be my oldest ds and myself eating it lol
