pasta and asparagus takes just 30 minutes to make, but it totally tastes like fine dining. You’ll make this again and again. Let’s get right into it. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add one tablespoon of salt
and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook according to the
package instructions, then return it to the pot
and cover to keep warm. While that pasta cooks, I’m gonna get started on the asparagus. Snap off and discard the fibrous ends, then cut the asparagus into thirds. Put a large deep pan
over medium high heat. Add one tablespoon olive oil, one tablespoon butter, and the asparagus. Season lightly with a
quarter teaspoon of salt and a pinch of black pepper. Saute five minutes or until crisp tender and remove it from the pan. Now add the remaining two tablespoons oil and two tablespoons butter,
along with your minced garlic. Cook the garlic one minute, then add shrimp in a single layer and season with a teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Cook the shrimp about two minutes per side or until they’re pink and
no longer translucent. Once the shrimp are cooked, quickly stir in a quarter
cup of fresh lemon juice, a third cup of chopped parsley, and a tablespoon of lemon zest. Remove the pan from the heat so you don’t overcook the shrimp, then return the pasta and
the asparagus back to the pan and toss everything to combine. This sauce is so juicy and it
coats the noodles perfectly. Whoo the best part of the job (laughs). And now, the taste test. Here we go. A few extra shrimp. I love serving this with a
generous sprinkle of parmesan. Ah, here we go. (upbeat music) Mm mm. Wow, the sauce is light
but it’s so flavorful. This is one of my
favorite 30 minute meals. It comes together so quickly
and it’s a meal in itself. I mean, you’ve got your
vegetable, your grain, your protein, and it is so delicious. If you guys enjoyed this recipe, give me a great big thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe
