3 Tbsp crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
2 Tbsp diced walnuts
1. Boil the pasta according to the package directions.
2. If you’re using frozen shrimp, defrost them by running cool water over them.
3. Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a pan on the stove. Season with pepper (shrimp are already salty) and saute the shrimp for about 3 to 4 minutes over medium-high heat. Remove them from the skillet once they are firm and opaque
4. Drain the pasta.
5. Transfer the pasta to a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients, stirring well to help wilt the spinach and mix in the pesto.
