Pesto pasta is delicious, but sometimes it needs a little something extra. Something fresh and maybe some protein. Well, this recipe has both. The spinach adds to the pesto to make the dish bright and vibrant, and the shrimp make it a full meal instead of just a carbohydrate overload.
If you’re looking for a little extra heat, add more crushed red pepper flakes, or take them out entirely if you’re serving the whole family and the little ones aren’t keen on spice. Definitely serve them on the side, though; there’s nothing better than a pasta dish with crushed red pepper (even if they’re just sprinkled on top).
