Shrimp and Spinach over Whole-Wheat Pasta

This Mediterranean-inspired dish helps you pack a healthy serving of spinach into a delicious seafood dinner. We use the marinade for the shrimp to achieve a garlicky, lemony, shrimpy sauce that coats the pasta and spinach. Topped with tomatoes, feta and parsley this meal has a light and fresh taste. We used whole-wheat pasta in this dish, but you can use any pasta or rice you like. You could also add a bit more spinach and skip the pasta entirely.
