      1/4  c             Extra virgin olive oil
    2                    Bay leaves
    2      Tbsp          Fresh squeezed lemon juice
      1/2  lb            Rock shrimp or small prawns -- shelled
      1/2  tsp           Dried rosemary
      1/2  tsp           Dried oregano
      3/4  lb            Fresh linguine
    1      tsp           Paprika - sweet or hot
      1/2  tsp           Salt
      1/4  tsp           Cayenne pepper
    2      c                 fresh spinach leaves -- cut into chiffonade
    8      medium        garlic cloves -- minced
    2                    Roma tomatoes -- cut into 1/4 pieces
      1/2  lb            Butter
                         Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese for garnish
 
 1.  In a food processor bowl equipped with steel blade, puree to a paste
 the olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, oregano, paprika, salt,cayenne, and
  garlic.  Stop the motor a couple of times, and scrape down the sides of
 the work bowl with a spatula to make sure garlic is getting finely minced
 .
 2.  In a large saute pan, melt butter. Add olive oil mixture and bay leav
 es.  Saute breifly over medium heat.  Do not burn garlic.  Add shrimp to
 the pan.  Roll shrimp around in pan so each shrimp is coated with the hot
  sauce and cooks quickly.  As soon as shrimp are barely cooked (be carefu
 l not to overcook - it may take only 1 to 2 minutes), remove pan from hea
 t while you cook the pasta.  When pasta is cooked and well-drained, retur
 n saute pan to low heat, add pasta, and toss with the shrimp sauce to coa
 t. fold in spinach and tomatoes.  Serve immediately, topped with Parmesan
 .
