7-29-17 Spaghetti with shrimp and asparagus


Tonight’s dinner is the result of our visit to the Farmer’s Market this morning where we bought a bottle of dill infused olive oil from the Paducah Olive oil store. I knew immediately what I would do with our new purchase. For a number of reasons, our crop of fresh herbs this year is short on dill, and I wanted to see if this olive oil would make up for that.


1.     Spaghetti
2.     Shrimp
3.     Asparagus
4.     Olive oil – plain – for cooking
5.     Olive oil w Dill
6.     Leeks
7.     Celery
8.     Garlic
9.     Fresh lemon juice
10. Fresh basil
11. White wine
12. Butter


While the pasta is cooking prepare the sauce – cook the ingredients in any order you wish. (It’s late and I’m too tired to write everything out tonight.)  Mix in the pasta with some of the pasta water, and drizzle with the Dill infused olive oil before serving.


The new olive oil came through and imparted a dill flavor to the dish, which was quite delicious.
