It was our turn to host the 'Dinner Club'. Our theme was Italian. This was a great entree that did not take hours in the kitchen and allowed me to enjoy our company. Great fun with great friends!

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; saute bacon, onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes in hot oil until onion is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir white wine into bacon mixture; cook and stir until wine is absorbed, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Stir shrimp and langostino lobster into bacon mixture; saute until shrimp and langostino are pink, about 2 minutes.

  • Reduce heat to medium and stir cooked linguine into shrimp mixture. Stir peas, pesto sauce, and half-and-half into shrimp-linguine mixture; cook and stir until linguine absorbs the liquid, 5 to 10 minutes. Top servings with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

This was amazing and easy and quick in 35-40 minutes we were eating. I used asparagus instead of peas because I don't like peas and it was really good too. Read More

Awesome recipe! Sautéed the onions and garlic in a couple of tablespoons of reserved bacon fat instead of olive oil. Added fresh asparagus after deglazing with the wine and cooked for two minutes before adding the shrimp. Didn't need to reduce the sauce after adding the pesto and cream...just gave it a good stir and it was the perfect thickness. Will make this again and again! Read More

This dish is rich and filling. It makes enough to serve a crowd and is also tasty the next day. Easy to prepare and also easy to reheat; just add a little milk and low heat. My husband loves this dish and has a list of about 15 people he wants to serve it to. Will be making this again. Read More

It was very good. I didn't add the half and half and it was still very good. I also used gluten free spaghetti. Great New Year's Eve meal. Read More

I loved this recipe! No Langostino lobster in my area so I doubled the shrimp. I also used asparagus in place of peas as my husband prefers it. It was fantastic! This was my first time using Pesto and I will definitely use it more! Loved this recipe. Easy to follow and delicious. Read More

I didn't add the parmesan because the dish has enough flavor! I did add in more red pepper flakes because I am a big fan of spicy food!! My fiancé loved it!! Read More
