Great quick dinner! Substitute any fresh vegetable you like for the asparagus. Precook the veg in the microwave if it won’t cook in the 3-4 minutes it will be in the skillet with the shrimp. I guess you could even leave out the shrimp and add another vegetable if you want!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring large pot of salted water to boil, and cook pasta al dente, according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water when draining pasta.
  2. While pasta cooks, heat 1 TB olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion, pepper, and celery until softened. Add garlic, asparagus, and shrimp, and continue cooking until shrimp are pink, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Add drained pasta, ½ cup of pasta cooking water, 2 TB butter, and ¼ cup parmesan. Cook and stir over low heat until sauce thickens.
  4. Serve in pasta bowls.
