linguine with shrimp, roasted tomatoes and spinach


sometimes i find recipes in random places — this one came from parenting magazine.   i made this in stages throughout the day — i think it would have turned out better had it been done all at once 🙂  it also needs some more flavor in my opinion — maybe more garlic?  some parmesan??   husband like it though – didnt have any complaints 🙂

  • 3 garlic cloves chopped, divided
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C bread crumbs

In a baking dish, toss together tomatoes,  2 cloves garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, and roast an additional 5 minutes; set aside.

Boil Linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add  oil, butter, and  chopped garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Add shrimp; season with salt and pepper to taste.
