Angel hair pasta with spinach and shrimp

1/2 lb frozen shrimp thawed
1/2 lb angel hair pasta
1T olive oil

2 cloves garlic minced (I like mine garlicky)
Handful of baby spinach
Handful of cherry tomatoes sliced or half a can of diced
1/4C white wine
1C chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes
Freshly grated Parmesan

Cook angel hair according to package and set aside save pasta water to add to dish
Add olive oil and butter to pan
Cook shrimp until it begins to turn pink
Add spinach and tomatoes to pan cook until spinach wilts
Deglaze pan with white wine and let reduce to 1/4
Add chicken stock and reduce by 1/3
Season with salt and pepper to taste
At this point add pasta and small amount of pasta water to thicken the sauce
Red pepper flakes can be added if chosen
Grate Parmesan over top of pasta
