Pastaaaaa! It doesn't have to be boring with just sauce. Add in a protein and veggie to liven it up, and to add more nutrition to your meal. I chose frozen shrimp and fresh spinach because it's what I had. I've made other variations with frozen broccoli, grilled chicken, fresh zucchini. You can really use whatever you have in your refrigerator, which is the best part of this recipe. It's simple and with little sauce, it really allows the vegetables to shine through. If you aren't a huge vegetable eater, you may choose the parmesan or Alfredo sauce option for added yum!

Allow frozen shrimp to thaw out. Boil water for fettuccini. In a pan sauté shrimp and spinach together, sprinkling olive oil, garlic, pepper and onion powder. Cook until shrimp are pink. Drain fettuccini once ready. In a large bowl mix fettuccini with spinach, shrimp and olive oil. *Optional* Add parmesan cheese or Alfredo sauce.
