In the time it takes to cook the noodles, you can be enjoying this easy shrimp pasta in a pesto white wine sauce!
This is one of those meals that is fancy enough for guests but is secretly super easy. This is actually one of the quickest, easiest recipes I’ve shared in a while! In the time it takes to cook the pasta, you have a restaurant-quality shrimp pasta dish ready to serve.
I’d like to tell you an impressive story about my inspiration and research for developing this recipe, but it’s really not impressive at all. We were at Trader Joe’s last week, and I bought a bag of baby kale thinking I’d figure out some way to use it. Then it was Father’s Day, and I needed to come up with a nice dinner. Put those together, and you have this meal! I bought some shrimp and had everything else on hand for this pesto white wine sauce.
If you don’t consume wine, I’m sorry. Just kidding! If you don’t want to use the wine in this recipe, just use all chicken broth. The flavor will be a bit different but still delicious. If you are watching carbs, the shrimp and kale would be wonderful even without the pasta! Or, you could try it over spaghetti squash instead of pasta. Tailor this light and easy dish to your needs, and I know you will enjoy it.
