Tomato and Basil Pesto Penne with Garlic Shrimp. September is upon us: back to school. This is the time of year when we go back to the old routine, back

This tomato and basil penne with garlic shrimp is hearty, yummy
and easy to make! There is no need to wait for the water to boil, to cook the pasta and strain it. You just put the pasta in a pot, add water, and when it's done,
it's done! The only step left is adding some ready-to-use tomato sauce and some pesto to make it even
What can be better than that?
Well, for protein purposes, and so we can have a whole
nutritious meal, my son added some garlic shrimp. Here is his recipe. I hope you like it!
