Delicious!

Wow, I was just surfing thru trying to find a main dish to use the homemade pesto I'd created - no sundried tomatoes. I doctored the recipe to serve 12 using 24 oz. shrimp. Deleted the feta thinking the parmesean in the sauce would make it cheezy enough. I roasted and peeled the red pepper and didn't have good olives so skipped that too. Used many more capers than specified. After cooking the shrimp and veggies in wine, I stirred the pesto into that and dumped the whole deal over 2 lb. linguine dishing it out with tongs. Excellent w/a tomatoey green sal., homemade ital. bread, and beets - homemade brownies and van. ice cream for dessert. Everyone loved it! Just read the suggestion about squeezing lemon juice on top and wish I had tried that. One of the best dinners I've ever made.

    Quick, Easy, Yummy

    Lateria from Newberry, FL

    I used one of the package pesto mixes, added a few extra spices (dill, basil) and some lime. Served it with Garlic/dill/cheese french bread. My husband and 2 year old loved it. I keep shrimp in the freezer in case I need to make a quick meal - this is a good recipe to keep on hand.

    Great!!!

    red from

    I did my own version of this. It was great! Good enough for a restaurant. Ive added some green onion to the peper and olives. Since I didnt had any pesto, I used tomato saus and basilicum. I forgot the wine, but didnt mis it. I didnt had any feta cheese, but added some lemon juice when the pasta was ready. Delicius!

    Wonderful ...Easy... Meal

    Dolly from WNC

    I tried this recipe and it was wonderful. Very quick and easy to prepare. I also used precooked shrimp and it was also fine. I would try the tip of using a little lemon juice next time. Overall a great choice to try!

    Deliciously Easy

    Sylvia from Stockton, CA

    I saw this recipe on your site. It just sounded good and looked easy. My whole family just loved it. I got precooked shrimp from the butcher and it worked out fine. A big green salad with all the vegetables and grilled french bread made the meal complete. Next time more shrimp the family says.

    Superb!

    Tiffany from NC

    This dish is delicious! My husband loved it; my two kids, ages 3 and 6 loved it too! It tastes even better reheated. It's a great dish to make for company. We couldn't find the sundried tomato pesto in our store, so we chopped up sundried tomatoes and used a basil pesto instead. Really Good! Double the reciped if it's for four, you'll have a good amount of leftovers.

    My New Signature Dish!

    Delilah from Santa Rosa, CA

    I needed something to make last night for my inlaws who were coming to dinner and I saw this recipe was featured when I opened my meals.com email. Since it looked so good and got so many good reviews I decided to try it. My husband was worried I was going to make a recipe I hadn't tried yet but it was easy to make and came out perfect. I served it with a Ceasar salad and some crusty bread with an olive/fig spread and everybody loved it. I am planning on serving this menu for my next dinner party as well as putting it on the regular rotation of family dinners.

    Terrific treat

    j jones from Durham NC

    I fixed this dish last night . What a trea! Terrific menu. I initially misread the menu, thinking it called for chopped onions which I sauteed with the peppers. It turned out delicious. A five star meal. Thanks for the goodness.

    EXCELLENT!!!

    Sarah Howard from Richmond, VA

    This is so yummy! And it's unbelievably easy. Very elegant for a quick get together. Do not have that brand pesto but used another and chopped up sun dried tomatoes into that and just bought a box of dried noodles and cooked them.

    Excellent summertime dish

    Karen Goldwater from

    My husband and I liked this dish very much. It was very tasty and easy to prepare. I don't care for feta cheese, so I replaced that with parmagean. I also used cooked, frozen shrimp to save time. It still came out excellent.

    Excellent

    Corinne Braslins from Abbotsford

    This dish was absolutely delicious and a big hit with our family. Substituted a jar of sun dried tomato with pesto as I couldn't find the pesto with dried tomato. Best pasta dish I've had. Thanks.

    Awesome

    Marie Rock from Ft. Walton Beach, Fl

    I made this recipe for my husband on Valentine's Day, and all he could say was awesome. I substituted with regular pesto, all three types of peppers, and no capers. My husband hates vegetables, but he ate every bit of his food. The recipe was very easy, and fast to prepare. I was astonished at how easy it was, and how good it was. I have recomended this to all of my friends. I suggest that everyone try this recipe.

    SWEET SASSY MOLASSY!

    Philly Baby from

    I am right about to make this delicous dish and I just know that it will be great! I know this because I make a delicous dish when ever the temperature is between 45 and 50 degrees and luckly for my date, today it is snowing! Just a warning, it is tough to find the ingredients in Walmart.

    Gourmet quality and easy!

    Sue from Salem, OR

    I had never cooked shrimp before but decided to try this because I'm trying to include more seafood in our diet. This recipe was easy and yet so delicious. My family loved it! It would make a perfect dish to serve to company. Also couldn't find the suggested pesto but bought garlic pesto and added Roma tomatoes as suggested by another reviewer.

  •  Star(s)

    WOW This was great

    Julie R from Ft. Meade.Fl.

    This was really good! Couldn't find the Buitoni Pesto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes so substituted Basil Pesto after reading some reviews. I also threw in some bay scallops with the shrimp and everyone raved over it. If you leave out the shrimp or seafood it makes a great side dish too! This is a definite keeper.

  •  Star(s)

    We LOVE this dish

    Anupa Ahuja from Dallas, TX

    This is a great dish! I didn't have sundried tomato pesto, so I used a big tablespoon of basil pesto and chopped some Roma tomatoes and threw them on at the end. Loved the flavors, loved how quickly it was made!

    Good, Easy & Very Mediterranean

    Susan Neorr from

    With prepared pesto, this recipe is a snap to make. It's colorful and delicious. Next time, I'll add more red pepper to boost the vegi aspect of a recipe rich in olive oil and olives. A 5 star if you factor in how quick and easy it was to make.

    Inseperable: this dish and Italy

    Carla Nolin from Boston, MA 02122

    I doubled this for a group of 8. Served it in a large bowl with fresh basil sprigs for garnish. I also used large shrimp. Served with a large green salad dressed with lemon, cracked black pepper and olive oil,two loaves of crusty bread and many bottles of Italian wine - the table looked wonderful! The only thing people talk about durning dinner was the pasta and Italy.

    Ideal summer dish

    This recipe is so easy and delicious! Because I watch carbs, I actually cut out the pasta and add more veggies like broccoli and spinach. Also, try sprinkling some lemon juice when serving. Perfect!
