  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.

Simple ingredients. Simple, delicious flavors. My kind of meal. What's more, this was simple to prepare and required very few dishes. I prepared this with the ingredients exactly as written, but enjoyed the cooking process by not measuring exactly, which also allowed me to use the ingredients in amounts to suit my own tastes and preferences. This is a beautiful and delicious dish - big payoff for little effort - I had this served in minutes from start to finish. I exercised self-discipline tonight and rather than serving it over rice I used "Miracle Rice." (Described as "Shirataki rice, guilt free rice, zero calories, soy free, gluten free." I can handle that)

What an oily, buttery, fattening MESS! This was good, but good grief! The main sauce ingredients were oil, butter and more oil! I halved those ingredients and added some Chardonnay with a bit of corn starch to thicken it up a bit. I also added the juice of 1/2 a lemon. I am soooo glad I did! I can't imagine this otherwise! Don't get me wrong, this was very good, but with a few alterations.

This was delicious -- I was looking for a "no carb" recipe for my husband. I used just the "basil" only that comes in the squeeze tube which was all I had, and canned diced tomatoes, again all I had. I added more spinach than called for, but the taste of this is fantastic!!
