A co-worker brought this dish to share at lunch one day. The vibrancy of the lemongrass pesto, succulence of the tender curled shrimp, and the al dente fresh pasta made this a lunch to remember. This dish is just beautiful to share with someone you love, thus I've called it Honey-I-Love-You...Pasta. Serve with a crusty French bread and garlic butter or olive oil. I've found lemongrass pesto recipes online, but haven't made any. I usually buy from a local specialty store or online. Warms up well in the microwave. Haven't tried freezing.
