Made some changes to this recipe to make it easier and healthier--chopped asparagus into bite-size pieces and sauteed in about 2T olive oil with garlic about 5 min. Add 1 stick low fat marg., lemon juice and frozen shrimp. Served over mini ziti and sprinkled with parmesan. Left out mushrooms as my husband doesn't like them. Using my version the meal is considerably lower in fat and you eliminate a step by not steaming asparagus. Taste was very fresh, light and healthy. Will definitely make this again next spring!

I was quite impressed with this recipe! So easy and SO good!! I cooked the mushrooms, asparagus, butter and minced garlic in a separate pan. Then, at the same time I had the egg noodles cooking and also cooked the shrimp, butter, a pinch of minced garlic, the lemon juice and added a few dashes of Creole Seasoning. This reduced the cooking time and then I was able to just throw it all together and serve it warm. By adding the Creole seasoning, it gave it more flavor, and I will continue to do that each time I make this recipe. I have already shared this recipe with a couple friends who have all made it and thought it was wonderful! Thanks again for a quick, easy and very tasty meal!!

I used angel hair pasta instead of egg noodles and only 1/2 cup of butter. I did what one reviewer suggested and sauted the asparagus in olive oil then set aside until I had sauted the shrimp a few minutes. I used the juice of one lemon. To spice up the flavor a bit, I added red pepper flakes and a bunch of Old Bay seasoning. It would have been a bit bland without the red pepper/Old Bay. My husband and I both enjoyed it with these changes. It was very good reheated the next day as well.
