Pasta with Shrimp, Asparagus, Tomatoes and Herbs

Shrimp_pasta_asparagus_tomatoes

 

We happen to be seafood lovers—shrimp, scallops, calamari, you name it– we like it! 🙂 And we find seafood to be the perfect addition to round out most carb-heavy meals with some lean protein! Many pasta lovers forget to have a protein with their pasta—leaving them feeling heavy and hungry in a few hours. Not with this little number! You eat a little less heavy pasta and more protein and veggies. You’ll feel light as a feather and satisfied for hours! Enjoy!
