Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Asparagus

Shrimp and Asparagus Pesto Pasta

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Pesto (Trader Joe’s is my personal favorite)

  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.
