Shrimp Scampi

The other evening Patrick requested a simple shrimp scampi. I try to figure out how to add extra vitamins and good stuff to my food so I knew a simple shrimp scampi was not good enough! Asparagus and roma tomatoes became the additions!

1 lb shrimp
1 bunch of asparagus, snapped in bite-sized pieces
3 roma tomatoes, seeded and cut in bite-sized pieces
small pasta

The shrimp and veggies can all be sautéed while the pasta is boiling over a span of ten minutes. However preparation takes a bit of time. We shelled and deveined shrimp, snapped asparagus, and cut tomatoes for about 30-40 minutes. Taking the seeds (and extra juice) out of the tomatoes isn't necessary but will reduce extra liquid in the dish.

Add pasta to boiling water then heat up evoo and a little butter in a pan. I added my seasonings to the oil here so it would take on the flavor of the seasonings. Once heated add asparagus and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Then add shrimp; once shrimp are cooked and become pink add the tomatoes for the final few minutes. Toss with pasta and serve with parmesan cheese!
Simple and delicious!
