This Creamy Shrimp Florentine Pasta recipe is quick and easy to make, loaded up with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach and basil and shrimp, and tossed in a heavenly creamy garlic sauce. Delicious!!
This past weekend, I spent the entire day on Saturday doing a mega-blast of spring cleaning around my loft, in hopes of getting the place all nice and ready for Barclay to move in next week.
And by spring cleaning, I mean spring cleaning out so much stuff. ?
Good grief. I felt like I had made so much progress these past few years with simplifying and minimizing my little home. But somehow, more and more things seem to have crept in here…especially into my closets and pantry, which I realized were somehow packed to the brim. I mean — let’s be real — I like to pride myself on being an expert packer, finding the perfect little organized spot for everything. But I was reminded this weekend that the flipside of that fact is that I am an expert packer, and have found the perfect little spot for a few too many things, ha.
So this weekend, I did yet another round of major minimizing, which resulted in a car full of donations to Goodwill. And by the end of the day, I’m happy to report that it also resulted in some happily half-empty closets, all ready for some handsome clothes and all sorts of other boy-stuff to move in. Can’t wait!!
I also did a major round of organizing and minimizing with my pantry, making room for some of Barclay’s Costco-sized bags of oatmeal squares and espresso beans and pistachios to move in. And in the process, I discovered that I had somehow stocked up on a ridiculous amount of pasta over the past few months. So heads up, there may be some extra pasta recipes comin’ your way soon, beginning with this ultra-comforting Creamy Shrimp Florentine Pasta. ?
I ended up making this for dinner over the weekend as a clean-out-the-pantry meal, especially after discovering a few jars of sun-dried tomatoes were also hiding away in my pantry. And oh my goodness — it was a major winner.
Barclay and I love just about anything “Florentine”. And all the better if some extra cream is involved in that garlicky sauce (our little reward after a hard day’s work!), and a handful of sauteéd shrimp are mixed in at the end…
…and of course, lots of extra Parmesan is sprinkled on top.
This meal was comfort food through and through, and it totally hit the spot. Can’t wait to make it again once this soon-to-be-husband of mine actually lives here! ?
This Creamy Shrimp Florentine Pasta recipe is quick and easy to make, full of great flavor, and oh-so-creamy and comforting and delicious.
