Servings 4

Prep Time 30 Minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. Linguini pasta (any long pasta is fine)
  • 20 Jumbo shrimp cleaned
  • 15 spears asparagus (trimmed/cut)
  • 5 TBSP EVOO
  • 3 TBSP salted butter
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 heaping TSP red pepper flakes / crushed
  • 1 glass dry white wine
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Splash of heavy cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Parmesan freshly grated
  • Parsley small bunch chopped

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook pasta for 2 minutes under regular cooking time for extra al dente. Reserve 2 cups pasta water.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat oil & butter on medium heat in a deep skillet with garlic & red pepper flakes to infuse the oil with flavor. Add wine and reduce by half.
  3. Increase heat to medium high. Add asparagus & sauté until just tender. Remove.
  4. Now sauté the shrimp until they just turn pink. Add cooked asparagus back to pan. Add cooked pasta to the pan & toss gently until combined. Add enough reserved pasta water until your desired sauce consistency is achieved.
  5. Add black pepper, lemon juice, parsley. Add cream & toss gently until the sauce nicely coats the pasta.
  6. Plate & garnish with additional black pepper, parsley & cheese.

 Enjoy!
