      This recipe was such a delight! Being a beginner cook, I found this recipe easy to follow. The lemon and pesto made the shrimp extremely tasty! Instead of 3 garlic cloves I used 1 and sliced the asparagus into little pieces about 1/2 inch and it turned out wonderful! The prep time took about 45 mins to 1 hour and the cooking about 15-20 mins. Altogether this meal was a hit for dinner!!!
