This is an outstanding dish. All of the flavors worked beautifully together. With the spinach it is differen't from other scampi' that I have had. Loved the green with the pink of the shrimp. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. You can bet I will be using this one again.

Quick and easy to make. Great taste sensation. I used fettucine in place of the linguine. The red pepper flakes gives this dish a nice 'zing' Thanks for posting. =)

I thought this was wonderful. Here are the changes I made: I used almost a pound of whole wheat fettucini. I added extra garlic--about 3 very large cloves. It took a lot longer than 5 minutes for the mushroom-water to evaporate. Since my shrimp was already thawed, I added the shrimp and spinach at the same time. I went heavy on the cheese and red pepper. I also threw in about a tablespoon of butter when the mushrooms were cooking. I thought this was a bit more work than I expected, but it was worth it. Good going!
