Spaghetti with spinach pesto and shrimps

The best ideas for recipes often come spontaneously. Last week on Saturday, I wanted to make a quick and easy pasta and I still had shrimps and spinach in the freezer.

Because I thought just spinach and shrimps would be a bit boring, I made a spinach pesto. This is super easy to make, but it immediately gives your dish a fancy twist.

The result was on the table within 20 minutes: low FODMAP spaghetti with spinach pesto and shrimps. Delish!
