This Shrimp Pesto Pasta is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. Garlicky basil pesto tossed perfectly with the pasta and shrimp makes it an easy quick meal.
There are lots of pasta in our pantry that are expiring soon so our menu these days include many pasta dishes especially for dinner when we would want something light. As you all know, pesto is one of my family’s favorite because of Ykaie. This is her favorite ever since she ate her first pasta. That’s why it’s been included in our menu rotation here at home.
The other day, Daddydoodledoo and I went on a hunting for canned pumpkin purée so I can make my Fall dishes but we didn’t find any kahit na dun sa supermarket na dati kong pinagbibilhan. We made it at home around dinner time and I had to whip up something easy and quick.
Good thing I have some shrimp thawing in the fridge — I decided to make Shrimp Pesto Pasta.
SHRIMP PESTO PASTA RECIPE VIDEO
This quick and easy meal is possible because I don’t make my own pesto. Yes, you can make your own pesto, but there are so many high quality bottled pesto these days that I feel like it’s not always worth the extra time and effort. My favorite brands are Gourmet Farms and Barilla.
All you need to do is sauté all the ingredients together. Then finished off with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. If only I have cherry tomatoes and basil, I would’ve added them too.
How’s your week going so far?Print
