@Enormus the recipe that u posted was terrible and a waste of money. FYI 1/2 or lemon juice? No way that over powered the dish and made it taste sour. Also adding all the ingredients to the saute pan in which u cooked the shrimp is a bad idea because now the shrimp are way over cooked! Duh? Add the shrimp at the last minute or saute them in a seperate pan and then add to the dish. Also to those that want to add the pine nuts remember Macaroni Grill's are toasted. So take a couple of moments and put them under the broiler, adds a nice touch. Enormus u suck dude!
Close, but here is the actual recipe.. pinenuts are occasionally added at select locations. Ingredients: 3 Tbsp olive oil 2 Tbsp fresh garlic, finely chopped 1 cup white mushrooms, sliced 20 ea Large shrimp, de-veined and tails removed 2 tsp Salt 1 Â½ tsp Black pepper Â½ cup Lemon juice, freshly squeezed 4 cups Baby spinach, fresh 3 cups Heavy cream 1 lb. Angel hair pasta, cooked Directions: In a large, pre-heated skillet, add olive oil, garlic and mushrooms. SautÃ© until mushrooms and garlic start to brown. Add shrimp, sprinkle with salt and pepper and sautÃ© until shrimp turn white. Add spinach, lemon juice and white wine to sautÃ© pan. Stir until all ingredients are mixed together well. Simmer for 1 minute. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil and stir for 3 minutes while boiling. Remove from heat, add pasta and stir until pasta is hot and all ingredients are mixed well.
Alas, I live more than 100 miles from the nearest Macaroni Grill. Hence, I was delighted to discover this copycat recipe of one of my MG favorites. It was a hit even with my finicky son. I also added some pine nuts. Perhaps a little high on the fat scale, but worth an occassional indulgence.
