Recipe review: Sauteed Shrimp with Baby Spinach and Tomatoes – Food on the Table

Tonight for dinner we made Sauteed shrimp with baby spinach and tomatoes from Food on the Table. I used some of the heirloom tomatoes from the garden instead of cherry tomatoes. We had this over some spinach fettucini.

This was a delicious, super-fast, easy and healthy dinner! Sadly, the kids didn’t enjoy it as much as I did, so I don’t think we will be making it again for a while. I’m liking the ease of these Food on the Table recipes – short ingredient lists, but all “real food.”

Martha Stewart shrimp and spaghetti squash


I made Martha Stewart’s roasted shrimp and spaghetti squash last night. I thought it turned out great, very light and satisfying. The kids rejected it, despite having eaten (and enjoyed) shrimp before.

Tweaks I made to the recipe: I cooked the spaghetti squash in the slow cooker (7 hours on low with 2 cups of water) so it would be done when we got home; I roasted the shrimp with shells on; I used dried parsley instead of fresh (our parsley is pretty slim pickings right now); and I went without the lemon wedges. With those changes, dinner was on the table in less than 20 minutes – woo! If only the kids had eaten it, I would say this was a great midweek meal.
