Spaghetti pesto with pistachios and shrimp

A few days ago, my parents were in Bronte and they brought me a jar of pistachio pesto and whole pistachios. Notoriously of first quality, the Bronte pistachios that are whole or in any other form, deserve to be used to the best and to be exalted. Here it takes shape the idea of a dish with delicate ingredients that do not prevail on each other so you can taste them as a whole. Let's see, step by step, how this dish took shape.

First we have to prepare the sauce that will serve as the base of our dish and, to do this, we have to shell out the prawns and keep the heads aside.

Just before the sauce starts to Simmons, we add, little at a time, the starch and stir with the help of a whip. We have to get a smooth and velvety sauce. Just ready, let's put it aside and keep it warm.
