Shrimp Pesto Linguine with a homemade kale pesto sauce, shrimp sautéed in butter and linguine pasta. This meal only takes about 15 minutes to cook, is packed full of nutrition with the kale pesto and is hearty and comforting. I recommend doubling the sauce and using half for later because it is just so tasty. The pesto has really nice flavor with a hint of kale, parmesan cheese, garlic, almond and olive oil without any single ingredient overpowering. Pesto is an easy ingredient swap, so if you don’t like kale or almonds swap them out for another herb or nut.
I bought the shrimp today deveined already so it made my job a little easier. Make sure to buy a fresh shrimp and clean them well before cooking, although as I am living in Cincinnati right now I understand you may not be able to buy it fresh. Shrimp should not have an over powering fishy smell and the shells should not have any spots or grit on them. Shrimp also cooks very quickly, a minute on each side so watch them closely because overcooked shrimp turns out tasting very rubbery. I hope your family enjoys this dish. Shrimp Pesto Linguine is a great go to quick family meal that just makes you feel good because it is healthy and fills your families tummies.
