Shrimp and Asparagus with a Louisiana Twist

Norma J. Macks

"A twist on a recipe found on this site. Being from Louisiana where shrimp is plentiful and served often I really needed something new. Just found out how AWESOME and healthy asparagus is. Nice to have leftovers. If you want more shrimp, add more; I find the veggies fill the space, making it healthier."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt butter with olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir asparagus, red bell pepper, shallots, garlic, basil, red pepper flakes, and oregano in the butter mixture until the pepper is softened, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp and continue cooking until the shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, 3 to 5 minutes more.
  3. Pour shrimp and vegetable mixture over the spaghetti and toss to mix. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the pasta mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Just added salt and pepper to the skillet, and a little pasta water when finished. We loved it!

I have made this over and over. I would not Change a thing. Quick and easy.

So tasty! I added a dash of Cajun seasoning, as one other person had suggested, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. I highly recommend this, and it will be a regular in our rotation for sure!

This was very good , my husband really liked it too ! I added some old bay seasoning to the asparagus tips before final assembly ( and didn't use the Parmesan cheese .)

This was great. I added a little more Parm because we are a cheese eating family.
