    I found this recipe in the Feb/March issue of Taste of Home.  I actually cooked it according to the directions with no changes if you can believe that!

    8 oz angel hair pasta
    1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp
    1 1/2 tsp olive oil
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 can chicken broth (divided)
    2 TBS lemon juice
    1 tsp basil (I used basil from one of those tubes from the produce section)
    2 tsp cornstarch
    4 cups fresh spinach
    1/2 cup feta cheese

    Cook pasta according to package directions.

    While pasta is cooking saute shrimp in oil until pink.  Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook 1 minute longer.  Set aside.

    In same skillet heat 1 cup broth, lemon juice and basil.  In a small bowl combine cornstarch and remaining broth- stir until smooth then add to the pan.  Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Add spinach and shrimp; cook until spinach is wilted.  Drain pasta and mix with shrimp mixture.  Serve with feta cheese and more basil.
