Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried pasta (I used linguini)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5-6 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 pound large, peeled raw shrimp
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup pitted kalamata olives, drained
  • 3-4 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • In a large pot, boil salted water and cook the pasta as directed on the box. Meanwhile, heat a large deep skillet to medium-high heat. Add the oil and butter. Once melted, add the garlic and shrimp. *If you like a thick cream sauce, sprinkle the shrimp with 2 teaspoons flour before adding them to the skillet.
  • Cook the shrimp for one minute, then add the wine and cream. Toss and cook another minute, then add olives and tomatoes. Simmer another minute or two.
  • Finally, mix in the strained pasta and spinach leaves. Remove the skillet from the heat once the spinach wilts. Salt and pepper to taste. (Season carefully, the olives and feta add a lot of salt.) Divide onto plates and top with feta cheese.
