  1. Combine the butter and the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in pesto, garlic, and tomatoes, and simmer until the tomatoes start to soften, about 2 minutes. Season with red pepper flakes and black pepper to taste.
  2. Stir the shrimp into the sauce, and cook just until they turn pink, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the spinach, and stir until wilted, about 1 minute.

This was excellent! I loved all of the flavors. I served it over penne pasta. I used canned tomatoes and also added artichoke hearts. Would be great with chicken, also.

This is fabulous, thank you Valerie! I used much more spinach, and next time will definitely try others suggestions and add lemon and/or white wine (meant to do it this time but forgot!) But ev...

I made this last night and it was amazing!! I used all the ingredients mentioned, and the recipe was very true to its description. Made it taste like restaurant quality and was so easy to make...
