Shrimp Fettuccine With Spinach and Parmesan

So for 2016 I am trying to cook recipes that I have not tried before.  I have lots of cookbooks including recipes that I have collected over the years but have never actually found the time to try my recipe collection out.  Here is my first test recipe and I think it was a good choice. 

My family including myself did in fact enjoy it and it was what I would consider a very simple recipe that did not require a lot of time.  I added mushrooms to this recipe which I thought was a great addition.

Here is a picture of the finished meal… Shrimp Fettuccine with Spinach and Parmesan and below the picture is the recipe just in case anyone is interested in trying it.
