Easy Shrimp Florentine and Penne Pasta

2 (9 ounce) packages frozen creamed spinach
12 ounces penne pasta
1 lb peeled large shrimp
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil


Boil the pasta in salted water until done. While the pasta is cooking, saute the shrimp in a pan with the olive oil and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes, just until the shrimp turns white and pink through. Remove from heat and keep warm. Cook creamed spinach in microwave according to package directions or until hot throughout. Before draining pasta, reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Drain pasta in colander and put the hot pasta in a large pasta serving dish. Pour the 1/2 cup water and spinach over the pasta and top with cooked shrimp. Toss so that sauce coats the pasta and serve.
