Ingredients: Metric Units
1 lb. spaghetti
1 lb. shrimp
1 c. pesto sauce
A simple and quick weeknight meal and so delicious.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Clean shrimp, pulling off tails and shells, removing veins if necessary. Set aside. (Timesaver: Our fish market sells already cleaned shrimp for a couple dollars extra; save yourself some time.)

Cook spaghetti according to package instructions, in plenty of water until al dente.

In a skillet, heat shrimp with pesto sauce. (Buy pesto sauce at the grocery store - find it with the refrigerated sauces or make your own pesto.) Toss pesto and shrimp over medium heat until shrimp is done - no longer floppy but firm, and pink not gray.

Drain spaghetti. Toss with pesto shrimp. Serve immediately. Delicious with snow peas.
