Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter A

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? All the Buzz: Asparagus Shrimp Linguine! Whether you scour the ditches and railroad tracks, visit the local Farmers Market, or drop by your favorite grocers, the growing season of asparagus is upon us. Now is the time to take full advantage of its abundance. Look for signs of firm, tight buds for tender morsels. The delicate purplish tips are the best of the stalk. Indulge thy self.

  1. Yummy! I like all the ingredients in this recipe. I like how you added capers for flavor. Shrimp, asparagas and linguini are great summer foods, almost could serve this with a light mayonnaise dressing as a pasta salad. πŸ™‚
