DIRECTIONS

  • Grind the garlic, parsley and jalapeno into a paste.
  • Heat olive oil in low heat, and add the parsley pesto blend (from step #1) into the pan.
  • Add in the shrimp to this mix.
  • Cook on low heat for a few minutes Add the lime, salt, and black pepper at this point. You want to heavily coat the shrimp with the black pepper.
  • After cooking for 5-7 mins, add the broccoli florets, pesto, and all other spices. Stir in and cover for 5-10 minutes.
  • Once the flavors are cooked into the shrimp and the veggies, it will form a gravy. At this point you can add in the pasta.and stir. You can avoid overcooking the shrimp by turning off the heat before the shrimp start to form into circular rings.
  • Top with a heaping spoonful of Parmesan, and serve! Voila!
