    That looks divine. I’m allergic to shell fish, but it may be worth some meds and a little swelling to try this out! Thanks for linking up at Tutorial Tuesday at Our Thrifty Ideas

    My husband would fall over and die if I made him this!! He LOVES asparagus and shrimp. Going to have to give it a go and see if I can earn a back rub or something! :)

    Woo yum! That looks great. I love seafood, especially in pasta. It’s great not only flavorwise, but you don’t have to buy as much that way. I love an economical “upscale” meal at home. Thanks for sharing this pretty plate of yumminess, Christine.
