Creamy Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair
Yields 2 servings (2 cups per serving)
1 tsp olive oil
2 oz. whole-wheat angel hair, cooked
Warm the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and the chili flakes. Cook one minute, stirring once or twice until the garlic is lightly browned. Increase the heat to high and add the shrimp. Cook one to two minutes, stirring often, until the shrimp start to turn pink.
Sprinkle the flour over the shrimp and cook 1 more minute, stirring often until the flour coats the shrimp. Add the milk and reduce the heat to medium. Cook one to two minutes, stirring until a thick sauce forms and the shrimp is cooked through and no longer translucent when cut with a knife.
Add the spinach, pasta, beans and cheese, then toss to coat. Cook an additional minute, until the spinach wilts. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
