One Pan Shrimp and Asparagus Linguini #SundaySupper

by lisa on February 5, 2017 · 19 comments

Why go out to a crowded restaurant on Valentine’s Day when you can make this easy shrimp and linguini dinner at home? You are only 30 minutes away to this perfect dinner for two! Valentine’s day is right around the corner and I am thinking of all the dinners I can cook. Since it’s on a week night this year, I want something easy to make. This is one of my favorites.

Today I am joining the Sunday Supper tastemakers in displaying easy dinner recipes for two. I have been going to their Food and Wine Conference for the past two years and diligently following the #SundaySupper movement. And finally I am participating with my own recipes.  I will be participating several times a month so plan to see some more recipes that are perfect for gathering around the table with friends or family.

This recipe is perfect for a week night meal because it is easy and quick. I really love that it only uses one pan and there is no colander  involved. Pasta, veggies and water is all added to the pot together. Who really wants to clean or wash any extra pans especially on Valentine’s day? I prefer to eat dinner then relax with a glass of wine.

My daughter went off to college this year and my high school aged son has a darn good social life. So I have become more accustomed  to making plenty of two person meals. This pasta recipe makes two very hardy servings but I don’t mind having leftovers for lunch the next day either. I will say that this one pan pasta is better heated in a skillet with some melted butter or olive oil rather than the microwave.

After you get hungry looking at this recipe, take a look at all the other Sunday Supper tastemaker recipes below. It will give you plenty of easy dinner ideas to cook for two.

A special thanks to Candace from Authentically Candace for hosting this event!

A one pot version works for me!

Love one pot meals and this one sounds amazing.

Ah, yes Valentine’s Day is the worst day to go out to dinner. It’s too crowded and the service is bad and it’s just no fun. I love staying home, especially with a meal that looks this good.!

Scrumptious shrimp! One pan and no colander? Yes, please! Saving the recipe!

Welcome to Sunday Supper, Lisa! Your one pan pasta dish looks divine! I’d be tempted to double it, just so I could have leftovers.

Thanks for the nice comment Stacy. I will admit that I like leftovers better making pasta the more traditional way. Just because I think the one pan pasta is not as good heated in the microwave the next day but butter by heating in a frying pan. But this is so easy that you could make it again the next day!

AMAZING! Where has this been my whole life?

So happy to have you join us Lisa!!! What a gorgeous meal and yes, perfect for that special meal for someone you love!

Made this last night and it turned out fabulous and so easy. Love recipes that use ingredients I already have in my kitchen! Only change to recipe was that I subbed chicken broth for wine since I didn’t want to open a bottle for the amount needed (I already had a bottle of red open) but will try with WW next time. Served with salad and warm Italian bread. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!

So easy and delicious. Love recipes that contain ingredients I keep on hand! Can’t wait to try other recipes from this site. I’m a jersey girl too!
