Delicious Pesto Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta Recipe

One of my favorite shrimp dishes to make for my husband and I happens to be this delicious Pesto Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta recipe. It's very easy to prepare and in less than 30 minutes (preparation and cooking time combined), you can have this hot and tasty meal on the dinner table.

This recipe makes 1 hearty serving so when I make it for the two of us, I double all of the ingredients.

Delicious Pesto Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta Recipe

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
3/4 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
4-5 ounces shrimp (washed, peeled and deveined)
2 1/2 ounces cooked angel hair pasta
2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese (finely grated)
nonstick cooking spray

Spray some nonstick cooking spray in a large frying pan. Over medium heat, add the olive oil and finely chopped onion. Saute the two together for 2 minutes or until the onion starts to become translucent. Add in the basil, salt, oregano and the shrimp. Stir the mixture together and cook on medium heat for approximately 6 minutes or until the shrimp is done. (Shrimp is done when it turns pink). Remove mixture from heat.

Toss the shrimp mixture with the freshly cooked angel hair pasta in a large bowl. Sprinkle in some finely grated Parmesan Cheese.
