Shrimp and Penne with Asparagus Serves 4

2 tbsp cornstarch

1 can(14.5oz) chicken broth

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ tsp dried dill

2 cup 1” asparagus pieces

1 small red pepper, diced

¼ cup sliced green onions

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

8 oz Penne, cooked

2 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste


In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and ¼ cup of the chicken broth and set aside.


In a 3qt saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the shrimp and garlic and cook until the shrimp is pink, about 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp and garlic to a bowl and set aside.


In the same pan, bring the remaining broth and dill to a boil. Add the asparagus, red pepper and green onions and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the vegetables are “crisp tender”, about 5 minutes.
