Pesto shrimp and pasta

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Container; (7 oz.) refrigerated pesto sauce
1 pounds Medium shrimp; peeled and deveined
4 teaspoons Fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 pounds Penne pasta; cooked according to package directions


1. Spoon enough oil from top of pesto to fill a tablespoon and heat in a large skillet over medium-high heat 1 minute.

2. Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes turning frequently. Stir in lemon juice; transfer to bowl. Toss with salt. When cool enough to handle, slice shrimp in half lengthwise.

3. Toss cooked pasta with remaining pesto and shrimp. Serve immediately.

A terrific pasta dish that can be cooked up in a flash. You'll save even more time if you purchase shrimp that has already been peeled and deveined.
