3. Deglaze the skillet with vegetable stock, and cook for 1 minute, scraping any browned bits with a wooden spoon.

4. Add butter to the shrimp and stir until melted. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and red chili pepper flakes.

5. Add spinach to the shrimp and toss until wilted,  about 30 seconds.

Tips for the Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta Recipe

This garlic butter shrimp pasta recipe with spinach is so easy to make. All you need is 20 min to whip this up! Here are a few tips to make it even better and add it to your weekly meals rotation:

  • You can marinate shrimp longer if you have time: Simply transfer shrimp to the fridge and chill covered for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  • The garlic shrimp cook quickly. All you need is about one minute per side, depending on the size of your shrimp. As soon as the shrimp turn pink and opaque, they’re done. So cooking on two fires with spaghetti pasta at the same time is manageable.

Garlic shrimp pasta seasoning

The seasoning used for these sauteed garlic spinach shrimp pasta is kept to a minimum but it yields wonderful flavors. Here’s a breakdown of the shrimp pasta seasoning:

  • Italian seasoning: This blend of herbs brings out delicious Mediterranean flavors.
  • Freshly cracked black pepper: classic seasoning for any dish.
  • Ancho/Cayenne pepper and red chili pepper flakes: It adds a kick of spice that cuts through bland spinach.

The addition of white wine when deglazing would also round up the flavor profile of these garlic shrimp with pasta.

How to keep and reheat the spinach shrimp pasta leftovers?

This shrimp recipe reheats very easily. Store the shrimp and spinach pasta leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days. To reheat, add to a skillet over low heat until the shrimp pasta is reheated. You may want to add a few drops of water to loosen the sauce. Alternatively, you can make a shrimp pasta bake with the leftovers: Dump everything in a baking dish with 2 tablespoons of water and bake the shrimp pasta in the oven at 400ºF (200ºC) until heated through. You can even crisp up the top quickly under the broiler.
