Ready In:




  • Boil or steam the asparagus until tender.
  • Run under cold water to arrest cooking. Drain and cut into 1-inch lengths.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place pasta in pot and return to a rolling boil. Cook until al dente. Drain well.
  • In a large saucepan (I use a large wok) saute garlic in the olive oil over medium-low heat until the garlic is golden brown.
  • Add butter and lemon juice to the pan. Heat until butter is melted.
  • Raise heat and add mushrooms, sauteeing them until soft.
  • Lower heat to medium-low. Add asparagus and shrimp, and heat both through.
  • Add the egg noodles with the shrimp and vegetable mixture and toss to mix.
  • Top with the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Toss again and serve.

    I'll add another 5 stars to the growing list of reviews. I did make a change in the recipe as I was unable to find fresh asparagus. I subbed fresh steamed broccoli which made a delightful addition. This is a very simple recipe which can be made last minute for an any-day appeal. Thanks so much for sharing this, Gerry.

    This was a delicious recipe - got the "You can make this again anytime" review from the family. I found this recipe on another site and it called for twice the amount of butter and oil. I halved it, just like this recipe has done and it was perfect!

    Loved the fresh flavors in this simple dish. Rather than boiling or steaming the asparagus, I sautéed it over medium-high heat with the garlic, then proceeded with the rest of the instructions. I started heating the water while I was prepping the rest of the ingredients, so as soon as it started boiling, I tossed the noodles in and started sautéeing the asparagus--by the time the noodles were cooked, the rest of the ingredients were ready to be tossed with them. I appreciated that it came together so quickly. I halved the recipe, and it served three of us nicely. Enjoyed it--thanks for posting!
