4.23.21 Sorry, I just couldn’t see adding cooked shrimp into boiling pasta water for 2-3 additional minutes for fear of the already cooked shrimp turning rubbery. I just quickly sautéed them in a little butter in a skillet and then added the shrimp at the end. I removed the shrimp from the skillet and then used it to cook the asparagus mixture, so no additional pans to wash. I didn’t have enough penne on hand, so I used farfalle. My husband really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More
