Mushroom Pasta Scampi

I'm in an Italian mood lately. Here's another great pasta recipe. You can use either linguine or fettuccine.

8 ounces uncooked linguine
2 T. olive oil
1 pound fresh white mushrooms, sliced
1 T. chopped garlic
1 pound frozen, raw, peeled and deveined, large shrimp, thawed
10 ounces fresh spinach, trimmed and torn into pieces ( about 7 cups)
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 t. crushed red pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water; set aside.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large skillet.

Add mushrooms and garlic; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until tender and mushroom liquid is almost evaporated.

Add shrimp; cover and cook about 5 minutes or until shrimp is almost cooked through.

Stir in spinach and reserved 1/2 cup pasta water, if desired.

Cover and cook about 1 minute or until spinach is wilted.

Place pasta in serving bowl; stir in mushroom and spinach mixtures, Parmesan cheese, and red pepper.

Toss to combine. Season with salt, if desired.
