Quick Shrimp Pasta

When you are really short on time for cooking dinner, the quickest meal you can prepare is pasta. Today I propose this recipe that I found at Real Simple website: shrimp, leek and spinach pasta.

You can have it ready in 20 minutes. To make this simple yet delicious pasta you will need:

3/4 pound gemelli, fusilli, or other short pasta

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 leeks (white and light green parts only), halved lengthwise then crosswise

salt and black pepper

1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp (raw)

finely grated zest of 1 lemon

3/4 cup heavy cream

10 ounces baby spinach (about 12 cups)

To see how it’s made go to Real Simple website.
