Day 100 - Shrimp Pasta for Two

Shrimp Pasta, cookies, apples & grapes.


Ahem.  Yes, I am excited.  Lunch #100  is finally here!  And to celebrate, we have an Operation: Lunch Box first packed for today:  Oreos!  Ok, not really oreos...the generic brand, fat free cookie that looks like Oreos.  But seriously, cookies for lunch!  And, you know, some fruit.

But, of course dear readers, I included a recipe for you as well.  Remember my thing about single servings and leftovers yesterday?  Well today, I'm using those same leftovers (cooked pasta, asparagus, feta cheese, and whatever I find in the pantry), but I'm making a different recipe...and this time, it makes TWO servings.  Yeah, you heard me right.  Two servings.  That way you can have a friend over, or just eat one serving for dinner and pack the other for lunch.   Enjoy!

Shrimp Pasta for Two

2 cups cooked pasta (I used a combination of spaghetti and vermicelli)
1 cup frozen shrimp, thawed and peeled
1/2 cup asparagus
1/2  cup feta cheese
2 T white wine (or broth)
2 T oil
1 T butter

1 T minced garlic

Heat oil and butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add wine and garlic; bring to a simmer.  Place shrimp and skillet and cook until pink on both sides, about 2-5 minutes.  Toss in asparagus (raw or previously cooked) and cook for about 1 minute; stir in pasta and cook until heated through.  If pasta is still hot, then just toss to coat and serve; if your pasta has been in the refrigerator, then reduce heat to slow and stir constantly until heated through, about 3 minutes  Add in feta, toss, and serve hot.
