Helpful hints

  • Pasta can be prepared with low-fat or fat-free cream cheese and butter can be reduced to 1/4 cup to reduce fat and calories.
  • Most grocery stores have cooked and peeled frozen shrimp that work great in this pasta.
  • Dry white wine in place of water adds extra flavor, but you can use water instead.
  • 1/2-pound asparagus yields approximately 1-3/4 cups.

Shrimp and Asparagus Linguini

Made this one tonight with a few substitutions. Added paprika, steamed asparagus, cilantro instead of parsley (I didn't have any), used tri-color rotini. Hubs liked it so I'll probably make again. May try other meats too, adjusting seasonings...

I used fresh peeled and deveined shrimp (about 20 medium shrimp) and put them in the hot pasta water after my noodles had cooked until they turned pink, took no time at all. I didn't have any linguini so i used bowtie pasta. I used frozen aspragus spears and just let them thaw in a strainer. I followed the rest of the recipe. I will be making this again!
