Ingredients: Spinach Pesto Pasta with Shrimp
- Angel Hair Pasta
- 1 cup of peeled and deveined large shrimp
- 1/2 cup Mushroom
- 1/2 Onion
- 1/2 cup Shredded Carrots
- 1 cup Baby Spinach ( or Frozen Spinach)
- 1/2 cup Walnuts
- 2 cloves of Garlic
- 1 tbsp Dried Basil
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 tbsp Sour Cream
- Oilve Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Meanwhile chop the onions and mushrooms and cook the Pasta according to the package directions. In a pan, heat oil and add the cut vegetables, season with salt and pepper. Stir fry them on low medium heat. Once the Pasta is cooked, make sure to reserve a cup of Pasta water for later use.
When the vegetables are tender, add the Pasta to it and mix well with the prepared Pesto, add the reserved Pasta water. The starch in this water will help to thicken the sauce and in turn coat the pasta. Add the Cooked Shrimp and Parmesan Cheese and mix well. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan Cheese when serving.
