Instructions
  1. Season 3 litres of water with 1 1/2 tbsps of kosher salt and bring to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and reserve 1/4 cup of cooking liquid. If using fresh pasta, cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and reserve 1/4 cup of cooking liquid.
  2. Dab shrimp dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. In a medium sauté pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp and garlic and cook for approximately 2 minutes per side until shrimp curl and turn opaque. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
  3. Add pesto and 2-3 tbsp of pasta cooking liquid to the same skillet over low heat just to warm, stirring once or twice. Add cooked pasta and toss to coat. Toss in shrimp to warm and combine. Serve immediately, garnishing with parmesan cheese.
