Basil Pesto Shrimp Rotini with Asparagus

Submitted by: SINABUNN

Introduction

This recipe is quick and easy! I think the most important thing to consider when counting calories in this dish is the SAUCE you use. I used Target's brand, Archer Farms-- others I found in the food database were considerably higher in fat and calories. If you use a different brand, try to find something comparable to 70 cal/ 6g fat per 1/4 cup. This recipe is quick and easy!
