Ingredients for the amazing 10-minute creamy garlic shrimp pasta

  • Pasta. You are free to use your favorite pasta. I love Fusilli or Penne for this creamy sauce.
  • Spinach. Fresh or frozen, you choose. I prefer lots of fresh spinach for this recipe. You can add as much as you want. The green leaf is a super healthy source of Vitamin A, C, Vitamin K1, Folic acid, Iron, and Calcium. Spinach also contains several plant compounds, such as Lutein, Kaempferol, nitrates, and quercetin. Each of these compounds can improve health, such as eye health and heart health, decrease the risk of cancer and chronic diseases, and many more..
  • Shrimps. Tiger, Brown, White, and Pink Shrimp all work well. Frozen or fresh, it’s up to you. Let’s talk about some nutritional facts. Shrimps contain antioxidants, which may help your brain and heart, as well as fatty acids. They are high in cholesterol, which is considered bad, although a study has shown that only a quarter of the population is sensitive to dietary cholesterol. Please buy high-quality shrimp because many are low-quality, farm-raised, and full of antibiotics. Therefore, quality is key.
  • Garlic. The main flavor in this dish is that we will need four garlic cloves. We keep the ingredients very simple; this one is very important. The cloves bring the dish to the next level.
  • Onion. One big yellow onion for the perfect flavor. The classic combination of garlic and onion. It’s so good.


  1. Try to cook the pasta right in the beginning, as the sauce won’t need much time.
  2. The pasta can be stored for 3 days in the fridge, but I wouldn’t recommend leaving it longer than 3 days.
  3. If you’re gluten intolerant, use gluten-free pasta instead.
  4. If you’re lactose intolerant, use lactose-free heavy cream.
  5. If you use frozen spinach, thaw it before cooking.
  6. If you use frozen shrimps, thaw them before cooking. If not, the sauce will absorb the frozen shrimp water and manipulate the taste.
  7. If you follow the steps you will not have a spicy garlic taste afterward. But if you want to feel garlic free afterward, eat fresh basil leaves. This really helps!
