Mediterranean Fettuccine with Shrimp and Spinach

I got this recipe off the back of my fettuccine bag. It looks and sounds absolutely delicious, and I am going to make it this week. I always like to try new things, so I'm excited to see how this tastes.


Makes 6 servings

Ingredients
1 cup sour cream, regular, low-fat, or fat free
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese with sun dried tomatoes and basil, regular or low-fat
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
8 oz fettuccine pasta, uncooked
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 bag (12oz) frozen, uncooked, peeled and deveined medium size shrimp

Directions
1. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, feta cheese, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Set mixture aside.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions, but after the first 8 minutes of cooking, add spinach and shrimp to boiling pasta. Cook pasta mixture for 2 more minutes. Drain thoroughly.
3. Add hot pasta mixture to sour cream mixture and toss gently. Serve immediately.

*Add-ons: For a spicier flavor, add 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper and 1 teaspoon dried basil.
