Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Asparagus

Shrimp and Asparagus Pesto Pasta


  • 1 Lb. Shrimp
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus
  • 2 Tablespoons Pesto (Trader Joe’s is my personal favorite)
  • 2 cups of your Favorite Pasta


  1. De-tail Shrimp and chop asparagus into 1 inch sections.
  2. Heat in a large skillet. I used my waterless cookware, set on low, waited for the whistle to sound, and shut the valvue to let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, while the shrimp and asparagus are cooking, begin to boil water in a separate pot.
  4. Once boiling, add your choice of noodles.
  5. Once the noodles are done to your preferred texture, strain and cool with cold water.
  6. Add 2 tablespoons of pesto to cooled pasta.
  7. Serve shrimp and asparagus over a bed of pasta.
