This combination of flavors is surprisingly delicious. Use homemade gnocchi and/or pesto for even better flavor!

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute asparagus and garlic in the hot oil until asparagus is tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked gnocchi to a bowl using a slotted spoon; set aside.

  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute shrimp, 2 tablespoons pesto, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in the hot oil until shrimp are fully cooked and opaque, about 5 minutes. Add cooked gnocchi, asparagus, remaining pesto, and remaining lemon juice; stir to combine. Serve.

Cook's Note:

Use a high-quality store-bought or homemade pesto.

This is amazing! I already have a shrimp pasta pesto in my rotation, but this is equally as good. I used homemade pesto (recipe also from this site) and added some halved cherry tomatoes so it would resemble the Italian flag (red, white, and green), and I couldn't stop eating this. The lemon juice adds a nice brightness to the overall flavor. I will be making this often! Read More

We followed the recipe. Delicious! The gnocchi is soft and chewy, the shrimp and asparagus have great texture. The herbaceous flavor of the pesto is wonderful! Yum! Read More

This was not the prettiest dish BUT it is tasty. I made a modification and cooked the shrimp first; then added the rest of the ingredients. I’ll make it again. Very fast and delicious. Read More

It is really good. I had to use snow peas. I always keep the shell one the shrimp. It adds more flavor to the broth. I also added dry red peppers. It turned out well. Read More

I made homemade gnocchi and pesto with pine nuts. Also, I included cut up tomatoes, red sweet peppers, onions with fresh peeled shrimp. Awesome to add pesto in the mix while cooking the shrimp. Yummy!!! Read More

Fantastic recipe, highly recommend using fresh ingredients if you can. Classico pesto sauce is a suitable substitute for homemade, and shredded asiago goes well as a garnish. Read More

This is excellent! Fast and easy if you use a jar of pesto. (I used Barilla, which is very good!) Read More
