Shrimp & Asparagus Stir-fry

We had some asparagus to use up, and I just happened to get a MyRecipes newsletter that included a bunch of recipes having to do with asparagus. One of them jumped out at me, so we made it for dinner Sunday night.

Here is the recipe for Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-fry on Noodle Pillows. What is a noodle pillow? It's just cooked noodles (we used angel hair pasta), mixed with sesame oil.
Then the noodles are formed into a shape that looks like a bird's nest and then baked in the oven for about 15 minutes so the edges get a little crispy. Yum!
We followed the recipe exactly, except that we added some yellow bell pepper we also had to use up.

I wouldn't change anything except to add a little spice next time--maybe even just some red pepper flakes. Oh, I would change one thing--use less noodles. Instead of making four pillows like the recipe calls for we made six and they were still pretty big.

As a side we had steamed broccoli mixed with sesame seed oil, toasted sesame seeds and melted butter.
