Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (whole onion for 4 ppl). Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.


Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions and tomatoes. Cook, stirring often, until tender, 3-4 min. Add shrimp and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp just turn pink, 2-3 min.** Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Meanwhile, add penne to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return penne to the same pot, off heat. Add pesto to penne, then stir to combine. Cover to keep warm. Set aside.


Add shrimp and veggies, spinach, reserved pasta water and half the Parmesan to the pot with penne. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir until spinach wilts, 1 min.


Divide shrimp and pesto penne between plates. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top.
