Shrimp Pesto Bowls

Moving forward on my small kitchen culinary journey, I discovered a restaurant quality seafood entree recipe that I could easily prepare at home.   Since that discovery, I have prepared this recipe more than once.

Here’s my take on Tastefully Simple’s Shrimp Pesto Bowl:

  • It’s easy to prepare.
  • There are different ways you can make it.
  • It’s budget friendly at $5.45 a serving for 6 people.
  • You can make it in your kitchen in less time than it takes to go out, especially on a Friday night in Wisconsin when you don’t want to go out because it’s below zero.
  • It’s an all occasion entree.

Like I said, it wasn’t hard to prepare.  The ingredients were not that difficult to get together or find using my iPhone Walmart grocery app (I’ll have to elaborate on that topic further in another post), and you can have them ready close to last minute.

I did tweak the recipe a bit, especially when I found out that spaghetti squash wasn’t quite in season to order it on the app.  I’m thinking that the reason spaghetti squash is an ingredient is because it’s a healthy option over pasta and a good way to get your vegetable quota in.  However, I don’t mind pasta one bit nor does Farmer.  And, a friend of mine who also tried this recipe through the Tastefully Simple 30-Meal Kit opted for the pasta too–spaghetti to be more specific.  With spaghetti you can choose the regular spaghetti or the fine spaghetti, whichever one trips your trigger.  I just grab whatever I have on hand or what’s a good deal at the time during my app shopping session.

I found it to be a nice alternative to Friday night fish fry.  It would be nice with wine if you want to be fancy like Sauvignon blanc to impress someone, have a wine tasting with the girls or want to have an above-average home cooked meal.
