Creamy Spinach Shrimp Pasta

This creamy spinach shrimp pasta is one of my favorite pasta dishes that I absolutely love!! This dish combines delicious shrimp with garlic, shallot, salt, and pepper, that creates the best flavors. Then it's time to make the most unbelievable creamy sauce that is made with heavy cream, white wine, pecorino romano, spinach, and lemon. The shrimp pairs so perfectly with the spinach and lemon it's unreal! Then its time for the al dente pasta which gets tossed right into the creamy sauce to make sure every noodle is coated and absorbing the rich flavors. This comfort dish brings you delicious flavors that melt in your mouth and will for sure impress your guests!
