Shrimp and Asparagus with Angel Hair Pasta

Total Time

When I invite a few friends over for an after work supper, I often serve this recipe, as it is so easy and tasty! I serve it with a homemade Parker House roll and a green salad. We can visit in the kitchen with a cold glass of Chardonnay, while I cook, and catch up on each others busy lives. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

I printed this recipe in 2003 and make it all the time. It's something the whole family enjoys. To make it go further I use 16 oz of pasta.

This wasn't as flavorful as I expected it to be. If I made it again, I'd add garlic and much more lemon zest.
