Marry Me One Pot Shrimp

Yield: 4

This is a riff on Marry Me Chicken. A recipe so good it inspires marriage proposals


  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic microplaned
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 8 oz fettuccine pasta
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package chopped Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • zest and juice of half a lemon
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese plus extra to garnish


  1. Heat oil and butter in a large pot on the stovetop. Add shrimp, seasoning with salt and pepper, and cook until shrimp is pink; add minced garlic and cook one minute, then take shrimp out of the pot and set aside.
  2. Combine the milk and chicken broth in the same pot, boil, and add the pasta.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes, forking the pasta so that the pasta does not stick to each other.
  4. Once the pasta is toothy but not finished cooking, add sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and cheese, and mix until the spinach is wilted and everything is coated in the sauce.
  5. Add the shrimp back in, zest the lemon, add the lemon juice, and stir until fully incorporated.
  6. Serve with some extra parmesan cheese, if desired.
