Recipes | Shrimp Pesto Appetizer | Tomato & Olive Bruschetta | Tuscan Pasta Dinner Party Menu


Shrimp tossed in Pesto with Grilled Bread

1 pound of shrimp, peeled
2 tablespoons of olive oil

4 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/3 cup of parmesan, grated or in chunks
2 cups of basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
3/4 cups of olive oil 

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  On a baking sheet, toss shrimp in olive oil.  Bake for 4-6 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink.

For the pesto, start with a food processor or blender.  Put in garlic and parmesan.  Pulse until the garlic and parmesan is in fine pieces.  Add in basil leaves, salt, pepper & olive oil.  Continue to pulse until a green paste has formed.  You may need to add more olive oil if you'd like it thinner.

In a bowl, toss the shrimp in the pesto sauce - serve warm, at room temp, or chilled.

2 cups of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of green olives, pitted
2 tablespoons of olive oil
sea salt & pepper
