Okay...so by now, you probably figured out my taste, in smoothies, videogames, and music, but what about food? Well, I honestly don't have a favorite restaurant but I do have a favorite "easy-to-cook" recipe that I would like to share with you all. It is so easy that even your grandmother could do it...wait, let me rephrase that, even Paris Hilton could do it. It is so cool how a person can acquire skills just by studying abroad!!
The recipe is *drums*Pesto Shrimp Pasta. Of course, you can substitute the shrimp with chicken, but let us stick with shrimp for now since it is much healthier.
*4 oz Penne Pasta (you can substitute the penne with Fettuccine)
*12-14 medium size precooked, peeled shrimp
*3 c chopped baby spinach
*1 chopped tomato
*3 Tbsp ready-made Pesto
*3 Tbsp crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (Optional but highly recommended)
*2-diced walnuts (Optional but highly recommended)
How To Make It?
• Boil the pasta according to the package direction. If you are using frozen shrimp, defrost them by running warm water over them and cook.
• Drain the pasta.
• Transfer the pasta to a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients, stirring well to help wilt the spinach and mix in the pesto.
• For an extra boost in taste, add olive oil and drizzle the pasta with vinaigrette.
• Make a serving for two or save the rest for later. Don’t forget to “decorate” the plate if you are having a special guest.
