While I was out for a run on Monday evening, I got to thinking about the ginormous burrito I wanted to demolish after running.
Yes, I think about food while I run.
But then I realized that eating a huge burrito would sort of defeat the purpose of the run, and so I came up with this beauty made of ingredients I had recently bought from Trader Joe’s.
So here’s what I whipped up:
Pesto Linguine with Shrimp and Asparagus
All you need are these items:
Frozen shrimp (pre -cooked and deveined)
A bag of the frozen pesto linguine with tomatoes
A few stalks of asparagus
Heat up a little olive oil and toss in as much shrimp as you’d like. While those bad boys are defrosting, chop up a few stalks of asparagus, and toss them in with the shrimp. Let them heat on medium heat for about 3 minutes, and add some pepper. Or don’t. I like my food very pepper-y.
Then add the little pasta nests from the pesto linguine, cover, and let simmer/defrost for about 5 minutes. Once the nests have separated and defrosted, remove from heat, and add crushed red pepper and Parmesean cheese.
Then eat! It would be distasteful of you to not pair this with a glass of pinot grigio.
It could serve 2, but honestly, no judgement if you eat the whole thing. I do.
I am sorry if you live in a place that doesn’t have Trader Joe’s. Maybe consider moving?
