Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Asparagus

In case you haven’t noticed I reeeeealy love pasta! We have pasta of some sort at least once a week. You should see my pantry, about 1/3 of it is stocked with pasta and noodles. I mean not to be a hater but zoodles are an abomination! Okay, I’m only kidding. I can’t say that until I’ve actually tried them. Someday I’ll get there but I’m not quite ready yet :). What can I say" I love carbs. They make me full and therefor no longer hangry…or in other words they make me a kind and happy human.
Todays pasta recipe is linguine with shrimp and asparagus and it’s tossed with a homemade basil and parsley pesto, and let me tell you it is oh so good! It is abundantly flavorful thanks to the fresh pesto and a bit of fresh lemon juice, plus you get those delicious and unique flavors from the fresh asparagus and shrimp. So far my family is 2 for 4 that like shrimp, one daughter and myself and I now I just need to get my husband and my other daughter to like it too. But for now I guess it just means more for me. Just like I used to be kind of annoyed by the fact that my husband didn’t like fresh tomatoes so he’d request his serving without, then I just realized once upon a time that that meant more tomatoes for me so there are no complaints there. We all have different taste buds but hopefully yours agree with me on this, this pasta dish is incredibly delicious! If you really don’t like shrimp, or if you don’t want to pay the higher price for it, feel free to replace the shrimp with chicken breasts diced into 1-inch cubes, then increase the cooking time by about 6 minutes (or until cooked through).  Read More »...
