Linguini with Shrimp and Tomato Hazelnut Pesto

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by Sackville

I can honestly say this is one of the best recipes I've had in a long time. If I could give it more than five stars I would! For one thing, it was easy and quick to make but tasted and looked like you'd spent a long time on it. I would definitely serve this to company. Also, I've made lots of pesto sauces but the sundried tomatoes and hazelnuts gave it a special touch. Finally, it reheated well and was even better the next day for lunch, after the flavours had some time to sink in. A lovely dish in every way.
