Have you tried pesto rice?


Grilled shrimp with pesto is one of my favorite mid week meals. It's fast, because I buy my shrimp already cooked from Pasta & Co. (I know that must be all too shocking, but nothing disgusts me more than shelling and deveining my own shrimp. It ruins the experience and I can't even eat it after.) Since I now live in a gluten-free home, I used rice as an alternative to pasta. To be quite honest, I thought this was going to be a substitution that was not as good as the original. On the contrary, it was really good. Using long grain white rice and mixing it with the pesto made a wonderfully creamy mix. I cooked 1 cup of dried white rice, and then mixed it with about 3/4 cup of pesto.
