Summer pasta

Standard

Pasta is the best. Shrimp is the best. This dinner is great. (This isn’t a very creative intro but I’m tired).

Ingredients:
1 lemon
1 shallot, minced
Olive oil (for cooking)
Shrimp
Asparagus
Tomatoes (I used cherry)
Pasta of your choice

Heat a frying pan up to medium and poi in olive oil. Once it’s heated up, add in shallots and cook till translucent. Add in juice of 1 lemon.
In a separate pot, boil water and toss in asparagus. Boil for about 3 minutes, or until softened. Once softened, drain water and let the asparagus cool slightly before cutting into big pieces.
Slice tomatoes in half and let simmer with shallots. When the tomatoes are starting to look cooked, add in shrimp and cook till shrimp are pink. Toss in asparagus.

At some point you should have cooked the pasta and drained it. Sorry I only just told you that, I’m a pretty bad blogger.

Mix cooked pasta with shrimp mixture and serve with lemon zest on top.
