Shrimp Pesto Pasta with Corn

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

This was inspired by a recipe from Geoffrey Zakarian of the Food Network (link). I never thought of combining pesto with corn and shrimp, so I wanted to try the flavor combo. :)


What I used:

- Shrimp**

- Rotini (I didn't have Orecchiette that was in the recipe).

- Cibo Naturals pesto

- Corn (a little from the salad bar)

- Chili flakes

** I already had sauteed a bunch of shrimp and used them for different recipes/meals. This is something I do to save time.

Because I already had the shrimp cooked (& didn't want to cook them again / overcook them), I made this and ate it as a cold pasta. It would taste good as a warm pasta as in the original recipe.

I just added a little pesto, corn, chili flakes and the shrimp on top of the pasta.

Quick and easy and looks fancy! The sweetness of the corn with pesto is unexpected & good. It is a light and bright.

You could also try substituting chicken for shrimp if you like.

Give it a try! We are good at this!
