Supplies: 2 slices hard salami, oil to coat frying pan, 1 bag fresh spinach, 2 cups shrimp de-tailed, 1/2 box large shell pasta, gorgonzola cheese, optional lemon juice & minced garlic.
Dave and I saw a shell pasta salad with spinach in a local market and instead of buying some decided we could make a much better version ourselves.
While waiting for the water to boil for the pasta, heat up oil in a large frying pan. Once hot add sliced or diced salami and a bit of garlic. This gets the flavor of the salami into the oil.
If the shrimp is frozen you should defrost it during this time by running it under warm water. Then take the tails off.
Cook the pasta and don’t burn the salami.
Add the bag of spinach, shrimp and juice of half a lemon to the frying pan and cover when the pasta is about 4 minutes from being cooked.
Drain the pasta and add a small handful of gorgonzola cheese. Toss with the wilted spinach, shrimp and salami.
The shrimp seem to be hiding in this pic but I swear they’re in there.
If you wanna make a veg version of this I think it’d be good with halved cherry or grape tomatoes!
