Pesto Shrimp Pasta

Tips for success: Pasta doubles in weight once cooked, 8 oz. dry pasta will equal 16 oz. cooked pasta. Whole foods sell a $3 bottle of chardonnay called Three Wishes that’s amazing. If you’re meal prep this dish, once reheated the sauce will separate, just stir it back together. If you do not eat shrimp the recipe works great with chicken, turkey or as a great side with fish.
