Paprika Shrimp Pasta - Erin

 This recipe is another one that I could eat until I die...  Really fast, really easy, really good!  The shrimp can be used for anything, or eaten just on their own, but I like throwing them in with some Linguine!

What you will need

1 lb. peeled, uncooked large shrimp
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp smoked Paprika (buy the Spanish kind, a million times more delicious than the grocery store)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 cup white wine (not pictured, oops)

Linguine or Spaghetti, about 3/4 of a box
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped cilantro (optional)

Balsamic Asparagus with Parmesan - Erin

This is a really good, and really easy way to prepare asparagus, taught to me by Roy's dad, Enrico who is from a very tiny village in northern Italy called Apricale.  Cooking time will vary depending on how crunchy you like your asparagus, but it's delicious no matter what!

What you'll need.

1 bunch asparagus, ends snapped off
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup grated parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
