Spicy Grilled Shrimp and Asparagus Fettuccine

Darlene Buerger


I live in the Southwest so I’m always looking for grilling recipes. This recipe combines all the elements of summer with a light sauce that coats the pasta without overwhelming the subtle flavors of the vegetables. The shrimp adds a spicy kick while the feta gives this dish a rich salty finish. This recipe can be prepared inside by simply stir frying the vegetables and shrimp in olive oil.
