I was really feeling like a shrimp pasta dish today. And what Mommy wants, Mommy gets:) This is so light, yet packed full of flavor. I was worried that the sauce wouldn’t be “saucy” enough and I can’t eat a pasta without a flavorful sauce, but I was surprised at how thick and delicious the sauce was.

8 ounces spaghetti
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, finely minced
