Angel-Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Greens

Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen
Balance out carbs with shrimp: A dozen shrimp is just 85 calories, plus shrimp is packed with protein and selenium, a powerful antioxidant.

Total: 30 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 15 min
Yield: 4 servings
Level: Easy

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
Kosher salt
8 ounces angel-hair pasta
8 cups chopped escarole, kale and/or Swiss chard
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
Grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs, adding the greens to the water. Drain and rinse under cold water; transfer to a large bowl.

Combine the shrimp, red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, about 3 minutes per side. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp mixture to the bowl with the pasta along with the basil and lemon zest and juice; toss to combine.
