Delicious low FODMAP Shrimp Pasta with Tomatoes, Spinach and Arugula. A fresh pasta recipe for an easy-to-assemble dinner or weekend lunch.
Today I bring you this easy pasta dish that combines fresh, easy to find seasonal ingredients. Here, shrimp, tomatoes and spinach are sautéed until just cooked through. They are then tossed with gluten free spaghetti (or linguini) and topped with peppery arugula. Optionally, yet highly recommended, I use white wine to make a light sauce for the pasta.
This Shrimp Pasta recipe is the perfect meal after a long day at the beach or a hard day at the office and it tastes so good!
