Basil Sauce with Sauteed Shrimp

Published March 1, 1995.

Why this recipe works:

It took very little work to turn shrimp into a quick pasta sauce. For our basil and shrimp pasta sauce recipe, we simply sautéed shrimp and then tossed them with pesto (minus the cheese), before tossing with linguine or spaghetti.

Enough for 1 pound of pasta

This simple but delicious sauce is really nothing more than sautéed shrimp tossed with pesto minus the cheese. Serve it with linguine or other long, thin pasta. Reserve one-half cup of the pasta cooking liquid and drizzle it in as needed when tossing the pasta with the sauce.
