"Shrimp pesto pasta comes together quickly. Simply cook your pasta, sautee that shrimp, then toss them together with heavy cream, pesto, and parmesan in a pot then enjoy. This shrimp pesto pasta is complemented with parmesan, angel hair pasta, plump shrimp, and a rich herby pesto sauce. It comes together on the stovetop in around 20 minutes with simple but flavorful ingredients! There’s a lot of beauty in a dish like shrimp pasta because there’s so much room for customization. Try using your favorite pasta, add in a veggie, or make a homemade pesto sauce instead of the pre-bottled kind. Get creative with it! "
