A note about serious food allergies

The classic Florentine preparation places the main ingredient on a bed of buttery spinach, topped with sauce and cheese and browned under the broiler. We've replicated the basic idea, giving you all those rich and cheesy flavors, but with less effort than a full-on Florentine. We've even improved it, with a bit of heat from the red pepper flakes. Tip: An easier way to mince parsley? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!

  • 2

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta boils, cook shrimp.

  • 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if needed, add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 1-2 minutes. Flip shrimp, and add shallot and garlic. Cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.

  • 4

    Make the Sauce

    Lower heat to medium. Add spinach to pan and stir occasionally until spinach is wilted and shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Add cream, Parmesan, half the pasta cooking water, mirepoix base, and pasta and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until sauce is slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. If too dry, add additional pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner and season with ¼ tsp. salt and red pepper flakes (to taste).
