Introduction

I made this as an after work quick meal that ended up being delicious and my replacement for pasta's with white cream sauces such as Alfredo or fettuccine style dishes. You can change the ingredients out for others if you don't like the ones I put in mine but the laughing cow really does it's job in this tasty meal!

Ingredients

    Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Rotini Pasta
    Laughing Cow Creamy Light Swiss, 4 Wedges
    Fresh Spinach, 5oz
    .75 Of A 9oz Package of Frozen Artichoke hearts ( you can use canned but it will effect sodium content )
    5 oz of precooked Shrimp
    3 Cloves of Garlic
    Cooking Spray
    Parsley 1tbsp

Directions

1.)Bring 5 quarts of water to a rapid boil on back burner

2.)On front burner put a medium sauce pan with 1 cup of water on medium high heat. Use this pan to heat through artichokes, and if your using frozen precooked shrimp use for that as well. ( do not throw shrimp in with artichokes due to varied cook times.

3.) After warming up Artichokes and/or Shrimp drain and set aside. ( Run cold water over shrimp so they don't carry over cook ) Make sure you watch for water to boil on back burner, when it does throw in pasta and set timer for 14 minutes.

4.) Dump out left over water from saucepan, rinse and dry. Return to burner

5.) On medium low heat spray sauce pan with non stick cooking spray of your choice.

6.) Toss in fresh spinach and cover with a lid for 30-60 seconds. Toss spinach around, when it starts to wilt throw in 2 cloves minced garlic ( I have a garlic mincer so it takes no time.)

7.) Toss spinach around a couple more times and set aside on a plate so it does not keep cooking.

8.) When pasta is done turn heat down to low, drain pasta and return it to burner. Add Laughing Cow, 1 clove minced garlic, half and half, parsley and stir well, until cheese is melted.

9.) Add spinach, artichoke and shrimp. Mix well

10.) Salt and Pepper to taste (optional and not included in nutritional content ) Plate and enjoy!
