Pasta with maine shrimp

Luckily my friend, Wendy Williams was willing to share with us her recipe for Whole Wheat Linguine with Maine Shrimp. Ah yes! Beautiful, sweet, baby, Maine Shrimp! And talk about seasonal. This delicacy is available for just a couple of weeks, so I pretty much try to eat them every day. They're gone before you can get tired of them.

asparagus carbonara

Asparagus is in season, it's so fresh tasting and so good right now. I just had to share a recent weeknight dinner. Enjoy!


3 in 3 asparagus, garlic, and ricotta pasta

What's in season? Asparagus! While asparagus is in season I incorporate it into 3 in 3 recipes. I cut asparagus on the diagonal so it cooks to perfection right along with the pasta, in boiling salted water for 3 minutes. This is an only-need-to-clean-one-pot dish.
