Easy healthy one pan dish. And can always substitute with Costco pesto in a hurry. Can use any type of pasta; I prefer cavatappi.
1. To make pesto:
Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add spinach and basil, cook for 20 seconds. Remove the spinach and basil, pat dry with paper towels, reserve water in pan.
Place parsley, walnut, Lemon juice, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese and garlic in food processor, process until chopped. Add spinach max and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, process to combine.
2. Return water in pan to a boil. Add pasta to cook. Add Broccoli Florets or Asparagus and tomato during last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain in a colander over bowl to reserve 3/4 cup cooking liquid.
3. Head 1 tablespoon oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Add shrimp to pan, sprinkle red pepper and black pepper. cook 2 minutes each side.
4. Mix pasta with reserved 3/4 cup cooking liquid, pesto, and shrimp, salt, cook for 1 minute.
