I have made this twice now. The first time I made it as written except for using regular tomatoes. It had good flavor but was a bit dry. I made it again recently with a few changes. I still used 3-4 regular tomatoes cut into wedges but added 1/4 C. of olive oil and 4-5 cloves of garlic cut into strips. I sprinkled this generously with lemon pepper, salt, thyme and oregano. After the tomatoes roasted I added 1/4 C. of butter, the aspapragus and shrimp in the shell. I stirred this a couple of times while it roasted for 10 min. I think next time I will put the asparagus in 5 min. ahead of the shrimp as it was crunchier than we like. I baked this in a pretty casserole dish and my husband and I ate it on the dock with a loaf of crusty Italian bread for dunking (skipped the pasta) and a bottle of red wine. Perfection!
