Tonight’s dinner was another Pinterest find. It was surprisingly easy and not-surprisingly, delicious. Here’s some drool-worthy photos to start off with. 🙂
I switched things up by making a strawberry salad with spinach, sliced strawberries, feta cheese, homemade croutons, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
We had some more honeydew too.
Yes, that’s the same picture as yesterday 🙂
Here’s the recipe. It’s a good one!
Shrimp, String Beans, and Pesto (adapted from here)
- Cook the pasta and string beans together in salted water to al dente. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water before draining.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp, season well with salt and pepper, and cook until they begin to curl. Remove from heat.
- Mix pasta, beans, shrimp, 1/2 cup pesto and pasta water together. Add more pesto if needed. Serve immediately with parmesan cheese.
*Note: the original recipe calls for homemade pesto, but we didn’t want to buy walnuts and we also don’t have a food processor yet. So, we used Trader Joe’s pesto from the jar. It’s not homemade, but it’s still really good.
