Ingredients

    1 box multi-grain pasta, usually penne rigate or bow tie.
    Shrimp, as much as you want to add. I use about 12 oz. cooked.
    Asparagus, cut into bite size pieces and steamed. I use a bundle.
    Heavy cream. When you reduce this, the flavor is good so not much is needed. I start with about 12 oz.
    Parmesan Cheese. Add about 1/2 cup at the end. and toss all ingredients together.
