Here is fast, easy, and yummy recipe for you, Self Soul Spacers!  I always keep spinach in my fridge for smoothies and salads, it's a Thayer staple.  Another Thayer staple is frozen shrimp, for those of you that know my husband, you know why, lol.  After a long afternoon of first grade homework and swim lessons, I needed a quick dinner that all of us would enjoy.  I hope you enjoy Shrimp & Spinach Pasta, as much as we did!!

Side note: This is what happens every time I cook with spinach... Lol.
