Linguine, shrimp and asparagus in a creamy sauce, delicious!

A very flavorful dish, shrimp and green asparagus pair wonderfully and linguine seems just the right size pasta for this dish.

I like my pasta “al dente”, meaning firm. If the cooking instructions are 10 to 12 minutes for instance, cook the pasta 10 minutes sharp. Pasta cooked al dente is more easily digested, plus if you have leftovers, the pasta won’t get soggy in the sauce.

I prefer to use raw shrimp, whether fresh or frozen, as I prefer to cook them lightly, just until they change color. I find that store-bought cooked shrimp are always overcooked and gummy for my liking.

Patty, this shrimp dish looks perfect! I agree with you, I never buy precooked shrimp! It is always flavorless and tough! Thanks for sharing this one!

I just finished eating and I am hungry again just by looking at it. I agree with you, I also prefer raw shrimps...if I find them as it not so easy. Love this recipe the wine and the cream really make the sauce. Perfect for a pasta al dente ( I even cook it 1 minute less than the box)
