Then you've got to try this creamy Tuscan shrimp pasta. It's pure comfort food.
Succulent shrimp, fresh spinach and al dente noodles, all coated with a delicious garlic parmesan sauce.
CREAMY TUSCAN GARLIC SHRIMP LINGUINEThis creamy Tuscan shrimp recipe has become a family favorite. (Well, except for the one kid who doesn't like pasta)
Some of my children pick out the spinach, but they gobble up the rest of it. It's a great option when you're short on time because it can be made in the time it takes to cook the noodles.
Pair with a loaf of store-bought French bread for an extra easy dinner.
