It is no secret that I love pasta and that I love shrimp. When I go on a long run or I’m having a hungry day I seek out a shrimp & pasta dish. It’s MY comfort food. This was DEFINITELY the case on Sunday when I made this recipe for dinner.
I went to Publix on Saturday this week (which was actually kind of nice!) and bought some nice asparagus and shrimp (both on sale!), and I always have pasta in my pantry — I just didn’t know what to do with it! I just know that after my long run on Sunday I was hungry and I wanted carbs. And shrimp.
It was fast, involved very little prep, and the whole family ate it without complaint. Definitely a winner and something we will be repeating!

Serve and make faces look like this:
Honestly, this recipe is nothing new – but it’s easy and sometimes you forget your can pair lemon and pasta. Or at least I do!
Try it the next time you’re in a pinch. It’s JUST as fast as take out – and costs less!
What do you crave you when are having a hungry day????
