  • 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.
