Broccoli Arugula Pesto Noodles with Shrimp and Goat Cheese
recipe by Shannon
1 pkg soba noodles (mine was 8.8oz)
1-1 1/2c broccoli arugula pesto
4oz goat cheese
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1lb uncooked frozen shrimp
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water, then add the soba noodles. Cook pasta until al dente, adding in the frozen shrimp for the last 3 minutes of the cooking time. My total cooking time was ~8min. Reserve a bit of cooking water before you drain the pasta and shrimp.
[Whether or not you separate the shrimp from the pasta is completely up to you. I did for picture and portioning purposes, but there's really no need.]
Add pasta back to the pot and add pesto and a few tablespoons of cooking water. Mix until noodles are well coated, adding more cooking water if it looks dry. Top noodles with goat cheese, tomatoes and shrimp.
