• 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and thinly sliced

• 1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced

• 1 cup fresh or frozen peas

• 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook 2 minutes less than package directions. Add shrimp, asparagus, bell pepper and peas and cook until the pasta is tender and the shrimp are cooked, 2 to 4 minutes more. Drain well.
