Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Blend basil, lemon juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, and salt in a blender until smooth.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir sugar snap peas in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp and red pepper; continue to cook until the shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 5 minutes. Stir basil sauce into the shrimp mixture and remove from heat; spoon over spaghetti to serve.

Wow! With two changed, this dish was awesome. I added a handfull of pinenuts and 1/cup parmasan cheese to the pesto.

This was so delicious and easy! I used prepared pesto sauce and a pound of shrimp. I will definitely be making this again!

Tried just the pasta and sauce portion of this recipe, but unfortunately we found it too overpowering in all areas (basil, lemon and oil).

This is amazing!!! Would give it 10 stars if I could. Even my 11 year old who hates mixed dishes ate it without complaint. An awesome weeknight dish. If you have the pesto premade, it just takes as long as the pasta takes to cook. A new family staple for sure! BTW my hubby took the left overs to work and ate them cold and reported back that it was just as good as it was the night b4, when it was hot.
