    I threw this together for dinner as I didn't seem to have any other ideas! Will ad a photo when I serve it up!

    Shrimp & Pesto Pasta Salad
    1 Lb of Shrimp cooked, peeled and cut into chunks (about 3 pieces from each shrimp)
    1 Package of pasta (I used spaghetti, you can use whatever) cooked and drained
    4 large hard boiled eggs (Its why we have chickens!) Chopped

    1/2 cup of fresh green beans cut to 2" lengths blanched & cooled

    Sautee & cool:
    2 stalks of chopped celery
    1/2 large onion chopped

    1/2 cup of pesto (I had plenty in the freezer from harvesting all my fall basil plants)
    1/4 cup of mayo
    2 Tbsp Olive oil
    1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
    zest of half a lemon
    juice of half a lemon

    Combine first ingredients then toss with dressing and chill!

    I like I'm having flash backs of last summer! [​IMG]
