This Mediterranean-inspired dish helps you get 4 cups of spinach into a delicious seafood pasta dinner. We use the marinade from the shrimp with a little thickening agent 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 with no worry of overcooked shrimp. 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.
