Stilettos and Diapers: Shrimp and Spinach Linguine


Shrimp and Spinach Linguine

I've written about eMealsbefore and there's no hiding that I'm a big fan. I love the simplicity of having a meal plan, the less time spent at the store and the money savings.  

We recently started Clean Eating, so I was very excited to see they now offers a Clean Eating Plan. The meals are great. Now, I'll be the first to admit we don't eat every single meal. I have the pickiest hubs in the world and there are some meals he just won't eat. I just fill in the menu with some of our family classics, or repeat past eMeals recipes that we love. Like this Sautéed Shrimp with Spinach and Linguine.

The recipe is simple, easy and clean.

Original Recipe:

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp white wine
2 lbs shrimp
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
1 lb whole wheat spaghetti
2 cups fresh baby spinach

I'm not one to really follow a recipe either...I end up swapping and adding. I use linguine instead of spaghetti because the hubs doesn't like spaghetti. Yes, I know. They are the SAME THING. But not to him. I add in half of a purple onion for some more flavor and use frozen shrimp. It's just easier to me than the fresh stuff. So I'll give you instructions my way:

Cook pasta according to directions. While cooking, heat butter and olive oil in a skillet. Add red pepper and white wine. Add onion and cook 5 minutes or until translucent. Add (fully cooked, frozen) shrimp that has been thawed, spinach and lemon juice. Cook just until shrimp is heated through and spinach is wilted. Toss in pasta and serve. 

This was the second eMeals meal I made for the second time this week. That's a really good sign over here!

  2. We use emeals too! Been using it since we started knocking out our debt. It's a great program!
