Sauteed shrimp is tossed with small ridged pasta shells, called conghiglie rigate, that are perfect for picking up the garlic-infused white wine sauce.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add asparagus to pot, simmer 30 seconds, and remove. Add the pasta and a generous pinch of salt to the pot and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large saute pan over high heat. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil and swirl it to coat the pan. Add the shrimp in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. After 2 minutes, turn the shrimp over; add 1 tablespoon olive oil, the garlic, and the red pepper flakes. Stir constantly for 1 to 2 minutes, regulating the heat to avoid burning the garlic.

  • Add the lemon zest and white wine to the shrimp. Stir to reduce the wine slightly. Add the lemon juice, cooked pasta, cooked asparagus, and reserved pasta water to the pan. Toss to combine. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and extra red pepper flakes on each serving.

I reviewed this on 12/21, but see that it doesn't show. Basically, it was on the bland side, there was way too much pasta to other ingredient ration. I added sauteed baby bellas, and this just is boring. This is probably my 4th or 5th time I have tried Martha Stewart's recipe (I love her!) but her recipes are bland, or baking dry, or no punch or wow factor. I won't make this again.

The only changes I made was I used organic FRESH Spaghetti, and I added 8 oz of sliced baby bella mushrooms. This came out bland following the recipe. I tossed the pasta once tasted and added more salt, and it was "just okay". I'm not sure why... but the recipes I try for Martha just always lack flavor in cooking or baking. I will have to research more and add a few bolder flavors. This was just not very tasty. If I'm going to spend money on shrimp, I don't want a bland result.
