Shrimp Spaghetti with a Pesto Cream Sauce

Since Saturday it feels like we have only been EATING! We’ve had parties to go to and friends to meet and there was a LOT of food. Lots of fat and sugar and carbs were consumed, it was AMAZING, but definitely paying for it in the gym these two days! πŸ™‚ In the middle of all of this, I had to cook up a meal for one of our lunches. I had about 15minutes to spare!!!!! before heading out the door to a party, so this was one super fast meal that had a very delicious outcome! πŸ™‚

If you don’t like shrimp, you can easily substitute with chicken or totally omit it. I love the pesto cream sauce … it was AMAZING!
