Lemon Basil Shrimp and Pasta

Tonight's Sunday Dinner:

This is a recipe that I found while perusing on Health.com. Its *VERY* easy to make - just like regular spaghetti but using shrimp. Since I'm not a good cook, nor am I a food blogger, I have spared all of you from photos. Instead, here's the photo from the recipe's Web site:


One of these day's I'll actually take a photo of my attempting to cook so you can really see how bad I am at it.

Here's the recipe:

Lemon Basil Shrimp and Pasta

Ingredients: * 3 quarts water * 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti * 1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp * 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil * 3 tablespoons drained capers * 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil * 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice * 1/2 teaspoon salt * 2 cups baby spinach

Preparation: 1. Bring 3 quarts water to a boil in a Dutch oven.

2. Add pasta; cook 8 minutes. {Tonight I used linguini; worked just as well}

3. Add shrimp to pan; cook 3 minutes or until shrimp are done and pasta is al dente. Drain.

4. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl.

5. Stir in basil and next 4 ingredients (through salt). {I don't like capers and omitted it. Salt too}

6. Place 1/2 cup spinach on each of 4 plates; top each serving with 1 1/2 cups pasta mixture. {I mixed the spinach in with the pasta and shrimp.}
