Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
Wow, I don't even know where to begin to describe how poor the results of this recipe were. In summary the dish was WAY WAY too fatty, almost inedible -- and I enjoy a rich pasta now and again. I followed the recipe exactly and am not a novice cook. The dish had minimal flavor, was too soupy and very greasy! I suppose I had the temperature too high when I cooked the shrimp in the sauce because the cream broke. We ate this as dinner but the leftovers unfortunately went to waste. Will not make again. If you make I would recommend reducing the butter/cream, increasing herbs/flavor, and cooking the shrimp separately, in other words -- find a new recipe.
