Recipe: Garlic Pesto Shrimp Linguine

Hello! Happy Monday!

How was everyone's weekend? I hope wonderful!! 

I bring you presents on this Monday...a recipe!
A simple, delicious, and elegant recipe to add to your week's dinner menu!  

I really enjoyed this recipe! It reminded me of something you would order at a restaurant and the dinner table fell silent when everyone was twirling pasta on their forks and eating. Silence at the dinner table is like angels singing to a cook's ears. :)

Garlic Pesto Shrimp Linguine

What you’ll need:
1 lb. shrimp. Cleaned, peeled and deveined
1 tbsp. butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
¾ cup dry white wine
3.5 oz. pesto sauce
1 package whole wheat linguine
1 tbsp. salt

What you do:
Bring  water to a boil in a large pasta pot over high heat. Once the water comes to a boil, add salt and pasta. Let pasta cook until al dente, according to package instructions.
While pasta is cooking:
In a large skillet, heat butter and garlic over medium heat until garlic is golden.
Add shrimp to skillet and season with salt and pepper. Let cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Add the white wine and pesto to skillet and cook with shrimp for another 2 minutes until shrimp is cooked through. Turn off heat.
Once pasta is done cooking, drain and put back into large pot.
Top pasta with the shrimp mixture and toss to combine.
