  • 1 pound cooked shrimp (thawed)
  • ¼ cup Pesto Sauce of your choice

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Instructions:  Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil and add Gnocchi to cook for several minutes until done (Gnocchi will rise to the surface when cooked).  Remove with a slotted spoon; place in a large bowl.  Add asparagus to the pot of boiling water and boil for 5 minutes or until it’s cooked to your preference.  In the meantime, sauté the shrimp in a pan until heated.  Drain asparagus and place with the cooked Gnocchi in the bowl along with the cooked shrimp.    Add ¼ cup serving of pesto of your choice, stir to coat and serve immediately while hot.  Enjoy!
