The shrimp defrost quickly - run cold water over them in a bowl.  It takes about 10 minutes.

Here's the Recipe for: 

Heathy Shrimp Pasta

1 1/2 pounds shrimp - defrosted

1 pound pasta of your choice - cook according to directions

(save some of the pasta water)

3 toes of garlic - peeled and minced or use a Garlic Press (that's what I use)

1/2 cup grape tomatoes cut in half

2 handfuls of fresh spinach

1/2 - 1 cup pasta water or you can use heavy whipping cream

(pasta water is just a little healthier)

1/2 fresh grated Romano Cheese


Saute'  the shrimp in a few tablespoons of olive oil

Add the garlic and saute

Add the tomatoes and fresh spinach

Toss in the pasta and pasta water or heavy whipping cream

Add the Romano Cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste
