    Things To Grab

    • Large stockpot
    • Colander
    • Large skillet


    1. Bring a large stockpot of lightly salted water to a rapid boil. Stir in Pappardelle pasta and cook according to package directions for al dente. Drain; reserving pasta water. 

    2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic cloves and saute until golden, being careful not to burn. Remove garlic cloves from skillet and discard. Add tomatoes and season with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes.

    3. Season shrimp with remaining 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Add shrimp to skillet and sear 3 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to HIGH and stir in wine. Allow wine to reduce for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium; add asparagus. Simmer 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. 

    4. Add cooked pasta to skillet and thin to desired consistency with reserved pasta water. Allow pasta to cook in sauce for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through. Just before serving, toss with chopped basil and mint.
