It's a 30-minute pasta dish. But with shrimp, asparagus and a saucy feta cheese dressing, it's as good for company as it is for weeknight-dinner rotation!

Shrimp Sizes

The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. Shrimp size terminology varies from place to place, so the count is the most accurate way to call for shrimp in a recipe. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium and 36 to 45 is small.

Storage Know-How

Stand fresh asparagus spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover with a plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Storing Asparagus

To store asparagus, stand fresh spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate. Or, store in refrigerator with a damp paper towel wrapped around base of stalks and cover loosely with a plastic bag. Asparagus is best when cooked the day it is purchased, but will keep up to 3 or 4 days. Wash just before using.

    Very,very good!! I used regular Good Seasons but added dry garlic flakes and some crushed red pepper. also, didn't have feta cheese so used mozzarella and parm. I cut most ingredients in half, but used 1/2 cup dressing. Will make again.
