1. For the pesto dressing, process all the ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.

2. Cook pasta in a large pan of rapidly boiling salted water until al dente. Drain well, return to pan and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil. Let it cool.

3. Peel and clean the shrimp. Heat a medium skillet, add in remaining olive oil. Toss in the shrimp and the wine. Cook the shrimp until it turns opaque, about 2-3 minutes.

4. Place the pasta, shrimp, bocconcini and tomatoes in a large serving bowl and pour in the dressing. Toss together well and garnish with basil leaves to serve.
