1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
1/4 cup (1 ounce) preshredded fresh Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
While pasta cooks, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, onion, garlic, and shrimp; sauté for 5 minutes. Add oregano, pepper, and tomatoes; cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in cooked pasta; sprinkle with cheese.
Quick, easy and tasted great! I used 7 grain fusilli instead of penne and a little white wine to deglaze the pan before adding the tomatoes. My husband and brother loved it and a bottle of aged Shiraz went well with it.
I made the recipe according to the directions. I ended up adding more red pepper and some garlic salt. I would probably add some fresh herbs next time to give it more flavor. My Fiance like it and asked me to make it again also. I do like that it is simple, quick, and very light in calories.
Because I had many ingredients that I needed to use up, I used this recipe as a guide instead of following it exactly. I used cubed chicken instead of shrimp, and sliced mushrooms and zucchini instead of the asparagus. Because I needed to use up 3 tomaotes that I had in the freezer, I diced them up and then added a small can of tomatoe sauce. I used 4 cloves garlic, 1 jalapeno, and doubled the amount of other spices, since I didn't use prepared canned tomatoes. The result was great! It was spicy and flavorfull, just as I love, and eating it with homemade bread was a winner. This recipe is simple, yet extremely satisfying!! A great meal for a weeknight or for guests.
