A fast and easy fancy dinner to make is gluten-free fettucini pasta with shrimp and spinach.

The delicious noodles I often use are gluten-free Tinkyada Fettucini.

Boil the water. Put in the pasta. Stir, so it doesn’t stick together. Shortly after the water turns white and the noodles are limp, drain the noodles from the water.

While the noodles are cooking, put 1 to 3 tablespoons of butter and/or olive oil in a metal pan (don’t use non-stick), on low to medium heat, hot enough to cook, low enough not to smoke or burn food. Put your frozen or fresh peeled shrimp tail-off into the pan. 20 shrimp is a good number to match up with one packet of pasta. Squeeze 1/4 lemon on the shrimp. Dabble salt, pepper, garlic powder (or real garlic diced), basil (dried or fresh), and paprika.

Squeeze 1/2 lemon on the drained noodles.

Add the lemony noodles to the butter/oil and shrimp. Stir. Add rinsed clean spinach leaves. Add some more of same spices to noodles and spinach. Stir. Add about 5 tablespoons of finely grated parmesan. Stir until cheese is melted and evenly distributed. Add 4 tablespoons of milk. Stir continuously on low to medium heat until creamy.

Once you get the hang of this one, it is really fast, easy, and yummy. No more than 20 minutes to prepare. Great date night dinner.
