With more inclement weather on the way, here is a fast, easy, and satisfying recipe for you! I always keep spinach in my fridge for smoothies and salads; it’s a Thayer staple. Another Thayer staple is frozen shrimp. After a long afternoon of first grade homework and swim lessons, I needed a quick dinner that all of us would enjoy. I hope you enjoy Shrimp & Spinach Pasta as much as we did!
