Pesto Shrimp Pasta

This is one of our favorite, quick go-to meals.  We generally have all the ingredients on hand an it only takes as long to make as it takes to boil the pasta.


  • 1 lb (450 g) of dry penné
  • 340 g raw, unpeeled shrimp
  • 270 ml Basil Pesto
  • 2 onions
  • 3-4 tomatoes

  • Cook penné according to directions, drain
  • Drain off oil from the pesto into a frying pan
  • Sauté onions till tender
  • Add tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly
  • Add shrimp and continue to stir until cooked through and completely pink, about 3-4 minutes

  • Add pesto and shrimp mixture to drained pasta

  • Toss well and serve
