  • While the pasta is cooking, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and garlic; saute until the shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove shrimp to a covered dish; keep warm.

  • Add asparagus and water to the hot skillet; cover and steam until the asparagus is tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Add tomatoes; steam until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Uncover and reduce heat to medium. Drain pasta and add to the skillet. Add shrimp, Parmesan cheese, and half-and-half, stirring gently to combine. Cook until sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Sprinkle with parsley and season with pepper to serve.
