DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and cook until pink, about 3 minutes.
  • Make a well in the center of the pan and add garlic. Saute until fragrant (no longer than 30 seconds or the garlic will scorch and impart a bitterness to the dish). Add asparagus. Next add artichoke quarters, red pepper strips, and lemon juice and bring to a quick boil. Turn off the heat and add butter, tossing with shrimp and vegetables to make a quick sauce. Check seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
  • Drain pasta, putting aside 1 cup of the pasta cooking water to use later.
  • Add shrimp and sauce to pasta and combine. Pour a little of the pasta water in to adjust consistency.
  • Serve warm and garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
  • Makes 2 servings.
  • VARIATIONS:
  • Feel free to use your favorite type of pasta. This dish works well with scallops (which are also low in mercury) or chicken instead of shrimp.
