DIRECTIONS

  • Cook linguini according to package directions.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Toss in the minced garlic, shallot, mushrooms, and reconstituted sundried tomatoes and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, then stir in half and half and season with pepper.
  • Cook 6 to 8 minutes, while stirring.
  • Stir the Parmesan into the creamy mixture, stirring until well mixed.
  • Stir in the pesto, and cook for about 5 minutes, until thickened.
  • Stir in the shrimp and cook until they turn pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Re-heat the linguini (either in boiling water or microwave) and serve shrimp and sauce over the hot pasta.
  • Garnish with grated Romano and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Note: this recipe also works well with 1 pound of lump crab instead of shrimp.
