"When I made this I used frozen asparagus which worked out well instead of fresh asparagus. We enjoyed this easy to make dish."

This dish is delightful! Due to what I had on hand, I used cooked prawns, and dried parsley. Served it over a fresh Konjac root pasta for a wonderful light dinner. Thank you for another keeper Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Worthy of more than 5 stars! I made a half batch and it was eagerly devoured!! The asparagus were perfect after 5 minutes. I did not use any butter - only garlic infused olive oil. To serve, I put the shrimp and asparagus on top of the tube pasta, then sprinkled with some chopped grape tomatoes. Going in my "best of" file!
