Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (100 votes)

The spring flavors of asparagus and pesto combine beautifully with fettuccine and shrimp in a light and simple pasta dish that works for family or casual entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with a tomato-and-arugula salad tossed with mustard-balsamic vinaigrette and fruit sorbet for dessert.

So tasty

I made a few substitutions: I used snow peas in place of asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes in place of the roasted red peppers simply because I already had them on hand and wouldn't have to make a trip to the store. It still worked out fantastically and my family loved it! Will be making it again very soon!

This was just okay. I doubt I'd make it again. I like that it's low calorie and easy to make. I think there has to be a way to incorporate great flavor and health.. I will keep looking.

My daughter had grocery shopped and were planning another dish but, lucky for us, we had exactly what we needed on hand. Everyone loved it and it's definitely on the family's most requested list.
