Sunday dinner series: pesto shrimp with spinach, toasted walnuts, tomato and blue cheese

This is one of my favorite dishes that I used to make all the time with whole wheat penne.  Since I’m not a huge fan of pasta and never make it for myself at home I now skip the ingredient altogether.  I love the flavor combination of the toasted walnuts, blue cheese and pesto.  It’s incredibly filling and very easy to prepare, minus what I believe to be a painfully annoying process of cleaning the shrimp.  Open a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and you’re good to go!

Ingredients:
3 tbls. pesto (make your own!)
3 tbls. blue cheese
2 tbls. toasted walnuts
1 bag of baby spinach
1 lb. shrimp
1 tomato chopped, seeds removed
l garlic clove chopped
Directions:
Clean shrimp, salt and pepper, coat in pesto
Toast walnuts over heat and set aside to cool
In pan add a little olive oil , saute garlic, then add baby spinach and cook until wilted
Cook shrimp over medium heat
Add shrimp over spinach and sprinkle chopped tomatoes, blue cheese and toasted walnuts on top
Bon appétit!
