Hosted by Confessions of a Novice Baker

This dish was great – loved the lightly sauced and refreshing vegetables. I would consider this the perfect meal in one bowl and it was just the right amount of food for dinner…with just enough room left for a small dessert.

  • 3/4 pound linguini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 bunch asparagus stalks, trimmed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 container cherry tomatoes, halved

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the linguini and cook according to the directions on the box. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high flame. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the shrimp turn pink. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside. Add the lemon juice, white wine, and the reserved cup water to the skillet. Let simmer until the liquid is reduced by about half. Salt and sauté the asparagus. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Return the shrimp to the pan and stir in the parsley. Add the drained linguini to the shrimp mixture, tossing to combine. Add asparagus and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
