I ended up making the recipe. It was a hit. Brent & the roomie loved it. I still have the same battered recipe card, and it is a staple in our house even today. Brent will ask for it all the time. It is so easy and so good. It reminds me of something Sandra Lee would make on Food Network because it's decidedly "semi-homemade". I made it tonight because I knew I would be getting home late from boot camp. It came together super quickly and did not disappoint. Also, it is oh-so-good left over - hot or cold. Make it!

- Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Remove and discard tough ends from asparagus and cut into two inch pieces.
- Boil pasta according to package directions. Drop asparagus into pasta water during the last 2 minutes of cooking time. Drain pasta & asparagus well.
- Whisk dressing ingredients together in a large serving bowl.
- Toss hot pasta and asparagus in dressing until coated. Add shrimp, tomatoes, cheese, salt, and crushed red pepper. Stir gently and serve while still warm.
