1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1/2 a lemon
salt and pepper
In a large pot of salty water, boil your pasta for 8 minutes. While that boils, in a skillet melt your butter and add your garlic ,white wine, and shrimp. Toss your shrimp until pink on both sides, about 6 minutes. At this point, throw your asparagus into your pasta water so it can boil for the last 2 minutes with the pasta. Once your pasta is done add it to the shrimp, mix in your cheese, add your lemon and parsley and adjust seasoning.
It's as simple as that. Enjoy!
