  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • minced
  • ¼ cup onion
  • chopped
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 10 spears asparagus
  • cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 18 peeled and deveined large shrimp (21 to 25 per lb)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Methods :

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the white wine, and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the red pepper flakes, butter, and asparagus; cook until the asparagus is just tender, about 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and lemon juice, continue cooking until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the cooked penne pasta with the shrimp and asparagus mixture. Sprinkle with parsley and Parmesan cheese to garnish.
