Shrimp and Asparagus Pasta

I was surfing blogs this week and came across this blogger's link to this this recipe. I made it tonight and it was so yummy! We're not big fans of bell peppers (they taste too acidic for us), so we left it out.

8 ounces penne, whole wheat
16 ounces shrimp, cleaned and peeled
1 red pepper, sliced
1 lb asparagus, cut in one inch pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 clove garlic, chopped
  1. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat.

  2. Add garlic and cook for one minute.

  3. Add asparagus and sautee' asparagus for 3 minutes.

  4. Add shrimp, red pepper, oregano and basil.

  5. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink and vegetables are tender-crisp; stirring occasionally.

  6. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package.

  7. Drain pasta. Add shrimp & vegetables.

  8. Toss with 1/4 tsp red pepper and parmesan cheese. Serve & enjoy!
