Ricotta Shrimp Penne

This dish is sooo good, but I really don't know what to call it! I was hungry and had a tough day so I needed comfort food. Instead of pigging out on pasta, bread, butter, and sugar I tried to stick with my healthy eating. 

I don't agree with depriving myself of my comfort foods, but I do believe in making them healthier. 
I cooked some whole wheat penne. 

I actually cook my whole wheat pasta longer than I do regular pasta because it really helps to keep it from tasting so "grainy". 

I drizzled a tablespoon of EVOO in my pan. 
I chopped some garlic and added red pepper flakes. 
(You may want to use very little pepper flake if you aren't a fan of spicy)

I chopped three tomatoes and threw them in....

And some spinach....

After the spinach cooked down, I added a cup of low fat ricotta cheese. 

Then I added a pound of shrimp and cooked it until it was pink. 

Serve it over the penne and top with parmesan cheese...

Now you've got healthy comfort food!
