  • 2 Tbsp pesto
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced or grated
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 lb peeled, de-veined shrimp (or chicken, if you're not into seafood or it makes your face swell)
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, dump alfredo sauce into large saucepan or frying pan and add all other ingredients. Stir well and bring to a gentle simmer. Add shrimp for the last 3-5 minutes of cooking time, heating until shrimp are just opaque (if using chicken, add cooked chicken or saute chicken in pan before adding sauce mixture). Don't overcook shrimp or they will be rubbery. Eew.
