Shrimp and Pasta in Pesto Sauce in No Time!


Today has been a busy day… typical Monday!  I quickly stopped at home and extra hungry so this is what I came up with… Pasta in pesto sauce! To make of this a express dish I had to cheat a bit and use pesto that was already made, but if you have time and you enjoy cooking you can always prepare your own fresh pesto!


  • 2 cups linguini pasta
  • 1 1/2 tbsp basil pesto with almonds & pine nuts (I got the Monterey Gourmet Food on the cheese isle)
  • 1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Italian cheese blend (already packed at the supermarket)
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • Dash salt
  • Pepper

Method: total time 20 minutes

  • Cook the linguini.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir  in the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Toss the hot linguini with the pesto and the shrimp.
  • Top with Italian blend cheese.

Enjoy your meal!
