Creamy Shrimp and Asparagus Pasta

January 17, 2019
Author Notes

Sauteed shrimp and fresh asparagus with egg noodles in a creamy
garlic sauce. A comforting dish and best with a green salad and
crusty bread. This sauce is one that I got from a seafood ravioli dish
that I found in an old cookbook and I decided it would go well with
the curly egg noodles, shrimp, and asparagus. —Maia Everhart
