🍲 PESTO SHRIMP PASTA PRIMAVERA
Inspired by and adapted from 2 great recipes from @twopeasandpod and @hiddenponies

https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/pasta-primavera
https://hiddenponies.com/2011/09/pesto-alfredo-shrimp-pasta

▪️ Penne Pasta
▪️ Xlrg Shrimp
▪️ Asparagus
▪️ Green Peas
▪️ Grape Tomatoes
▪️ Carrots
▪️ Corn
▪️ Zucchini
▪️ Alfredo Sauce
▪️ Basil Pesto
▪️ Parmesan Cheese

▪️ Asiago Kale Salad Kit @yourtaylorfarms

It was okay – but I tried to get slick cooking the Asparagus, Zucchini, Corn and pasta in the Instant Pot – it was too long for the asparagus and zucchini so they were mushy, the corn was great and the pasta cooked well but I like a more al denté noodle so less time next time…. And just steam the veg like I usually do…

I do think pasta in the IP would do well for me with a little less time and my Chef IQ gave me a great idea… Using the steamer basket sitting on the bottom prevents a burn notice and is self straining (see daily video) – very cool!

Chicken, pasta and veggies swimming in a creamy, cheesy sauce – what’s not to love! Surprisingly this is my first time making it though.
