Spicy Shrimp Pasta

Spicy Shrimp Pasta


    Spicy, creamy pasta. With skrimps.



    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1 pint half-n-half
    • 4 ounces cream cheese
    • 1/2 tablespoon garlic (minced)
    • 1 teaspoon REALLY HOT hot sauce (plus more, as desired)
    • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    • 2 teaspoons pink Himalayan sea salt
    • 1 pound jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined)
    • 1 cup fresh baby spinach (chopped roughly)
    • 2 vine ripened tomatoes (chopped)
    • olive oil (as needed )
    • freshly cracked black pepper (as needed)


    1. Dry shrimp with a paper towel, then season with half of sea salt and Italian seasoning. Add a small drizzle of olive oil, then all of the hot sauce and stir to coat.
    2. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the pan and melt.
    3. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes, then turn. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, then remove.
    4. Start on your pasta, according to package directions.
    5. Add the remaining butter to the pan and melt. Add garlic, and stir until fragrant, then add spinach.
    6. After the spinach has wilted, pour in half-n-half and add remainder of seasonings. Stir together.
    7. Add the cream cheese in small pieces and stir to melt.
    8. Add the tomatoes, then shrimp and stir to combine. Taste it, and adjust seasonings as needed. When you’re satisfied, add the pasta.
    9. Stir together until well combined and finish with cracked black pepper. I add a few more drops of hot sauce before the last stir too, but that’s up to you.
