Seriously do you need a recipe?  Well, most of the times moms are always on the rush juggling a lot of things in the house, not to mention cooking is not an exemption on the list.  All you need is to do is open the fridge and see what you can cook the easiest way possible.  Imaginations just keep on popping on your mind and then thats all there is to it.  Grab the right pans and preheat them while   prepping the ingredients in no time.

Ingredients:

3 cloves of garlic (minced)

1 large white onion (finely chopped)

2 bunches of spinach (stalks removed and chopped)

Shrimps (shelled)  (i used frozen pack)

Prepare the pasta according to packet instructions until al-dente. While waiting for the water to boil, sauté onions until frangrant (translucent) add shrimps, stir until the liquid has evaporated.

In another sauce pan, blanch the spinach for a minute and drain; add into the sautéed shrimps. Add cream, minced garlic.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add enough milk to thin the sauce. Add  pasta. Mix well until.  Add some parmesan cheese just before serving.
