Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time12 min


  • 8 ounces shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 4 ounces gluten free penne
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes, optional


  1. Put a pot of salted water on to boil.

  2. Stir the shrimp together with the lemon zest, garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and set aside.

  3. Rinse the asparagus. Remove and discard the bottom 1/3 of the stem. Chop the remaining portion into 2 inch lengths to mirror the size of the penne.

  4. When the water comes to a boil add the penne and stir for about 30 seconds to make sure they’re not sticking together.

  5. In a large nonstick sauté pan over a medium high heat, add the marinated shrimp and sauté for two minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second side then turn off the heat so the shrimp doesn’t overcook.

  6. When the pasta is 2 minutes shy of being done add the asparagus to the same boiling water with the penne.

  7. When the pasta and asparagus are both done drain them and add them to the pan with the shrimp then turn the pan back on to a medium low heat.

  8. Squeeze over the fresh lemon juice. Add the butter and stir until the butter is melted and the shrimp is heated through and serve.
