Pesto and Shrimp Pasta

A favorite dinner each time I come home from CA is fresh pesto pasta with shrimp.  Jodi always has homemade pesto in the freezer so we start that…

1-2 bags frozen homemade pesto (Jodi’s is best)

1 large bottle of drained pitted kalamata olives

1 t0  1 1/2 pints of cherry tomatoes cut in half

4-5 lbs. thawed shrimp or prawns (thaw prawns in cold salt water)

top with Pecorino cheese

1 to 1 1/2 box of fettuccine pasta

Thaw 1-2 bags fresh pesto, warm up in extra large skillet.  When hot,  add thawed shrimp, olives and tomatoes.  Cook till shrimp is pink and sauce is hot.  If too thick, add a little olive oil, wine or milk.  Add cooked fettuccine and serve with Pecorino cheese.
