Grilled Shrimp and Vegetable Kebabs with Rosemary and Olive Oil Asiago Pesto

Sweet shrimp in savory pesto, grilled alongside summer veggies- these skewers are the perfect party fare. The Rosemary-Olive Oil-Asiago Pesto is too delicious to skimp on; this recipe makes enough to marinate the shrimp plus slather on the veggies and spread on grilled bread. This pesto is also a fabulous stir-in for pasta, topper for corn on the cob, accompaniment for any grilled seafood or meats, and even perfect for pizza!
