Pasta with shrimp and pesto and veggies.
Is a recipe really necessary?
Cook the pasta,
cook up veggies (onion, garlic, maybe some broccoli from the freezer, red bell pepper)
Add the shrimp, cook some more
Add pesto
Add pasta with some of the pasta water (all the starch in the water makes the veggies and pesto stick to the noodles)
Top with cheesy cheese.
