Fusilli with Roasted Tomatoes, Asparagus, Shrimp and Garlic

This Italian pasta dish does a nice job of blending shrimp, asparagus, and tomatoes in a way that makes the most of all three ingredients. It is flavorful and filling, and makes a great family dinner.

Notes


  • I found that the garlic did not roast completely, possibly because it did not come in contact with any oil or cooking liquid. It may be easier to roast the garlic separately via the conventional method, and incorporate it back into the recipe as noted.

This Fusilli dish sounds scrumdiddlyumptious! I love the way the ingredients are roasted. Seafood in a pasta dish is great. I am not a big fan of asparagus so I may leave that out but I really want to try this pasta sauce. I think you could eat it with penne as an alternative to fusilli.

could I be missing it or don't you state how many servings your recipes provide? If you don't please do!
