Shrimp Pesto Pasta

Boil the pasta

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook it according to package instructions. Drain it and set it aside.

Season the shrimp

Toss the shrimp, zest, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in a bowl until well combined. Place a pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and shrimp.

Sautée them

Cook until completely pink. Don’t over-cook them because they’ll become rubbery. Remove them from the heat and set them aside.

Add pesto and serve!

Place the pasta in a bowl. Add the pesto and toss until well combined. Transfer the pasta to serving bowls. Top it with shrimp, tomatoes, and parmesan. Enjoy!
