Recipe Ingredients for Light Shrimp Scampi

50 g spinach
50 g dry Ronzoni rotini
3 g garlic
51 g onion
14 g parsley
79 g shrimp
6 g butter
1 g salt

Recipe Directions for Light Shrimp Scampi

  1. Prepare the pasta by boiling it in water.

  2. Use 1-2 g butter, a pinch of salt, and a few drops of water, if necessary, to saute the garlic and onion over medium-high heat or until they start to get soft.

  3. Add 3/4 the fresh parsley, finely chopped, and another 1 g butter. Again, add a pinch of salt and a few drops of water to help the parsley wilt, but not stick, without extra oil.

  4. Add 79 g pre-cooked shrimp, and toss over medium-high heat until curled and pinkish-orange.

  5. Finally, add 40 g of the spinach, reserving the other 10 g to use as garnish on the plate. Toss the 40 g together in the skillet with the other ingredients until green, but wilted.

  6. Remove from heat and melt the remainder of the butter over the vegetable-shrimp mix for flavor. Serve over the warm pasta and garnish with the rest of the parsley.
