Shrimp Scampi with Spinach and Roasted Peppers

     The other night as I was walking threw  Publix I of course was drawn to the smell of their sample station.   They were making a shrimp dish.  After I tried it, I knew I had to make it!!   But if you know me, I like to make it better and always add more veggies!!

     So here is my interpretation of their Shrimp Scampi with Spinach and roasted  peppers.  

-1 bag frozen shrimp, deveined, peeled and tail removed 
-1 large box Thin Spaghetti noodles(or really, whatever you have)
-1 teaspoon red pepper powder
-1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic
-1 cup sweet roasted red peppers. 
-1 green bell pepper
-1 large onion
-6 tablespoons butter
-5 ounce package of spinach
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-1 tablespoons chicken broth powder
-1/2 cup water
-freshly grated Parmesan 

1- Cook noodles in method of choice.  When finished, drain well.
2- Sauté onions and bell peppers in olive oil.
3- When peppers are soft, add shrimp, spinach, roasted peppers, water, garlic, pepper, and chicken broth. Cook until shrimp begins to turn pink. 
4- Mix in butter cut into small pieces.
5- Mix in noodles, tossing lightly.
6- Plate and top with Parmesan. 

     I know this is not my regular blog post, but it was easy to make and disappeared quickly at my house.  Next time I am adding more spinach.  It seems like a lot at first, but shrinks down quickly.
