Total time: 
Serves: 8 servings (about 2 cups each)
  • 1 lb uncooked fettuccine
  • 7 cups broccoli florets (about 1 lb)
  • 1¼ cup prepared basil pesto
  • 2 lbs peeled and deveined cooked medium shrimp (thawed if frozen)
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add fettuccine, and cook 6 minutes. Add broccoli florets to pasta; cook until pasta is al dente and broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Reserve ½ cup cooking liquid, and set aside. Drain pasta mixture.
  2. Return pasta and broccoli to pot; reduce heat to low. Stir in pesto and shrimp. Cook, stirring constantly, just until heated through, about 2 minutes, adding cooking liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed for creaminess. Top with Parmesan; serve immediately.
