Add the shrimp and lemon zest to the skillet, tossing frequently, until the shrimp is opaque throughout, 4 to 5 minutes more.

Add the cream and ½ teaspoon salt to the cooked pasta in the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring, until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp mixture and the spinach and toss to combine.

Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until spinach is cooked.
