Reviews for Pesto Shrimp Pasta Toss
"Delicious. I used 8 oz. angelhair."
"This is so easy and so delicious! A must try!"
"This recipe is a fav at our home. I have also substituted other veggies that I have on hand to make it more to what our kids enjoy."
"I made this last night and my husband and I were very disappointed. We love every ingredient that it calls for, followed directions exactly, etc. throwing shrimp in boiling water left them with absolutely no flavor and the consistency of the pasta wasalso tasteless. This recipe has no flavor at all. We even sprinkled some cayenne on to give it a kick, but that didn't work, either. I won't be making this again."
"Fantastic dish! This was a favorite at the potluck I had."
