Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Pasta (Gluten Free)
  • 4 cups Broccoli (chopped)
  • 2 cups Mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 lb. Shrimp (cooked)
  • ⅓ cup Pesto

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on package. After it’s done, drain, rinse and leave in colander. Sprinkle with a little olive oil and toss to keep from sticking.
  2. Give the pot a quick rinse and place it back on the stove.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, steam the broccoli to the doneness you prefer.
  4. In the pasta pot, add olive oil and turn heat on to medium-high. When the oil is heated, add the mushrooms. Saute until the mushrooms start to turn golden brown. Add shrimp and warm them up on the heat for a few minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the pasta and ½ of the pesto. Stir to coat.
  6. Add the broccoli and the rest of the pesto. Stir to coat, again.
  7. Serve.
