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.

I'm going to try this tonight. This is just the recipe I was looking for. Our friend just gave us some fresh asparagus from his garden and I want to prepare it in a quick and simple way.
Thank you

This was absolutely delicious! I did double the pesto sauce & used the sundried tomatoes as a substitute for the peppers & topped with fresh parmesan cheese. This is definitely a keeper!

Tonight I needed a recipe that I could prepare with things on hand...& this was it! The only substitution I made was sun dried tomatoes (not in oil) in place of the peppers. It was quick, easy and very tasty. No one guessed this was put together in a pinch!

I'm not a big shrimp lover but this recipe was delicious. It wasn't drowning in pesto - just enough. The asparagus made it even better! My husband loved it and he's not easy to please. This is a real keeper!
