  • Bring 4 cups of water to boil in a pot and add capellini.  Cook until al dente, about 4 minutes.  Drain, rinse and divide into serving bowls.  
  • Heat Griddler to High:  
    In a small bowl add shrimp, olive oil, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.  Mix to coat the shrimp.  Add shrimp to hot grill and close lid.  Cook 2 minutes and set aside.  
  • Add olive oil to frypan over medium high heat.  Add garlic cloves and cook 1 minute.  Add broccoli and asparagus and cook 2 more minutes.
  • Add lemon juice and chicken broth.  Continue cooking until reduced, about 10 minutes.
  • Add butter and tomatoes.  Cook 1 minute, then add in spinach and cook until just wilted.
  • Spoon vegetable mixture over pasta.  Add shrimp.  Then pour remaining sauce over each bowl.  Top with feta cheese and serve.


If you don't own a Griddler, you can saute the shrimp in a frypan over medium high heat about 2 minutes on each side.
