Tastes Like Spring (See Jane Cook)


While I love cold-weather eats and all types of comfort food, sometimes the heaviness gets me down and I end up craving something light.  I wanted a dish with a lot of color and shrimp--it was the perfect opportunity to have this Asparagus Shrimp Pasta. I incorporated a few more veggies to get in my daily dose, and it was just was the doctor ordered to cure those winter blues (it's not called SAD for nothing).

  3. That look so much better and fresher than the Bertolli frozen version of that exact meal that my mom bought last week. If only I could get her to use a recipe so she doesn't screw it up...
