  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for pasta.
  2. In a large saucepan, saute olive oil, garlic and Pepperazzi until golden, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp and saute for another 6 minutes until cooked through. Remove and discard garlic.

Add chicken stock and cook to reduce by half. Slowly introduce goat cheese, stirring until melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in butter to melt.
  5. Return peppers and shrimp to the pan. Add spinach. Cook together until spinach is tender, about 3 minutes. Add hot pasta and toss to combine. Stir in pasta water to loosen sauce, if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.
