csa noms: whole wheat angel hair pasta with shrimp and spinach

hey! long time no blog! it’s csa season again, so i have NO excuse to not start blogging again. the first delivery of the year was great! my box included strawberries, spinach, arugula, collards, bok choy, romaine lettuce, butter crunch lettuce and spring onions. i’ve been making a lot of salads with all the leafy greens, but this was the first meal i cooked with csa veggies this week.


the recipe is pretty simple, but i was super excited because it was an impromptu meal made of things i just happen to have in the house. i adapted it from a martha stewart recipe.

salt and pepper to taste
3 ounces of whole wheat angel hair pasta.
2 cups of raw spinach
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, minced
red-pepper flakes
1/3 cup dry white wine
18 large shrimp, peeled
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. cook pasta for 5 to 7 minutes.
meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt half of the butter over medium. add garlic and pinch of red-pepper flakes. cook for about 1 minute. raise heat to medium-high and add wine. cook until reduced by 1/3. add shrimp and spinach. season with salt and pepper. cook until shrimp are opaque throughout. remove skillet from heat. swirl in lemon juice and remaining butter. add pasta and toss to combine.
