The Great Shrimp Scampi Update!

Jump to recipe

There’s something so satisfying about a good old homemade shrimp and pasta dish. One night last week I was craving a meal and didn’t want to necessarily blog it. I wanted to make something for me. But after devouring my first bowl I knew I had to share this delicious Shrimp Scampi with Spinach and Cherry Tomatoes recipe with all you foodies out there. This dish is simple and above all delicious with the added flavors and pop of color provided by the spinach and tomatoes!

Scampi has always been a favorite of mine. A couple years ago, I shared a similar recipe that featured asparagus and tomatoes. I’ll be honest when I say I like this recipe a little more. Only because asparagus has such a strong flavor and it almost took away from the shrimp. Most recipes focus on the butter/white wine sauce and strictly the shrimp. I love indulging in a simple and flavorful protein but when it comes to my own recipes, I love adding a little something extra. This time the spinach wasn’t overwhelming and of course, I added a little heat with some red pepper flakes!

In the past, I have strived to make something different every week. This week was a tough one to admit, it’s time to update some of my favorites. Tastes change and through all my adventures over the past two years I have figured out how to tailor recipes to better suit my evolving tastebuds. So, every now and then there may be a repeat recipe, but I promise you with every revamped dish, the flavors have greatly improved! I still have some new and exciting cooking firsts to tackle, but it’s always good to get back to basics. Here’s to evolving recipes and delicious dishes new and old!
