I used large, uncooked shrimp which I peeled and deveined then cooked consistent with the recipe instructions below. Large shrimp really gives an upscale flavor to the present dish and makes for a pleasant presentation, too.

Pesto Shrimp Mushroom Pasta


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 8 ounces white mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 8 oz spiral pasta

  1. Heat large skillet on medium-high heat until hot. Add olive oil - it should run without sizzling. Add shrimp, season shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, cook for about 3 minutes, turning once midway, until shrimp is pink and cooked through. Remove shrimp from the skillet.
  2. Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the same, now empty, skillet. Add sliced mushrooms. Season mushrooms with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until mushrooms release liquid and reduce in volume and get soft, for about a minute or two.. Add back the cooked shrimp. Add 1/2 cup basil pesto and 1/2 cup chicken broth. On medium heat, mix everything to combine. Remove from heat.
  3. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain. Add to the shrimp with sauce. Top with chopped fresh basil.
