1 lb of Peeled and De-veined Shrimp
1/4 stick of softened or melted Butter
2 tblsp Aah Traditional Basil Pesto
Ready made Pasta

In a mixing bowl, add shrimp, butter and Basil Pesto. Using clean hands or spoon mix until all shrimp is covered with pesto sauce. Cook shrimp in an already heated skillet or grill. This takes about 2-3 minutes to cook. Cook until shrimp are pink. Do not discard the sauce.

Have your pasta on the stand by. If you don't have time to boil, there are great pastas that are found in the perishable department. Follow directions: heat water, put in pasta, until hot: about 3-4 minutes or specified by directions. Drain off any water. Add shrimp and pesto to hot pasta!

Add more pesto if necessary and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
