Asparagus & Shrimp Noodles

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by luvinlif2k

This was the result of a very poorly followed recipe. We were pleasantly surprised with the result and will be checking out local Weight Watchers groups tomorrow. The asparagus can be either fresh or frozen. I used frozen and that worked out just fine. Also, if you like more heat, increase the amount of chili paste.

Very easy and very good, a nice chilli tang but not so much that it overpowers the shrimp and asparagus! Quickly prepared, making it a great midweek supper. I didn't have the water chestnuts, so used beansprouts instead, they were very good with this dish! Thanks for a super, light meal, made for My-3-Chefs November 2008
