Yes I know the name of this is a mouthful – but there’s a LOT going on in this dish – however it is worth the effort.  Even though this calls for tons of spinach – don’t be afraid, baby spinach literally wilts and disappears in the pan. If you are up for the effort, this dish is full of flavor while still being quite light. This is a nice spin on the lemon garlic shrimp pasta I’m so fond of making.
