This is super simple to make, but yields delicious results. My 4 year old gives it the thumbs up as well (her favorite food is shrimp, though.) The fresh tomatoes give it a great fresh flavor. I think I would buy fresh basil to go with this, as is suggested. I would even make this for a dinner party It took me about 20 minutes to make this. I didn't alter the recipe at all except to add some salt to the water that I boiled the shrimp in. I would make this for a weeknight meal or a special occasion. I served it with French bread and a green salad.

Great recipe. I think the recipe really depends on the pesto you purchase since that is the main flavor. It is fast to prepare and my 3 y/o and 5 y/o ate all of it. I did chop up some fresh basil and put it on top with the cheese. We just served this with some french bread. We will make this again for sure.
