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!
