This is SOOOO good! I've made similar dishes, but this one puts everything together into one fabulous dish! I did substitute julienne strips of red pepper in place of the tomatoes - added when I sauteed the garlic. That was wonderful as well. This is sure to be a recipe I come back to again and again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, boil salted water and cook the pasta as directed on the box. Meanwhile, heat a LARGE skillet to medium-high heat.
  2. Add oil and butter. Once melted, add the garlic and shrimp. *If you like a thick cream sauce, sprinkle the shrimp with 2 tsps. flour before adding them to the skillet.
  3. Cook about one minute, then add the wine and cream. Toss and cook another minute, then add olives and tomatoes. Cook another minute or two.
  4. Finally, mix in the strained pasta and spinach leaves. Remove from heat once the spinach wilts. Salt and Pepper to taste. (Season carefully, the olives and feta add a lot of salt!).
  5. Divide onto plates and top with feta cheese.
