Summery Shrimp Primavera

Do you ever have one of those evenings where you're staring into the fridge with NO clue what to make for dinner, hoping something will magically appear? That was tonight at my house.

I had a few essentials on hand and threw together this Summery Shrimp Primavera, which was a huge hit with the family, even my one year old.

1 lb shrimp (any size, I used large shrimp)
2 T olive oil
1 red pepper, rough dice
1 yellow pepper, rough dice
6 asparagus stalks, cut into 1" pieces
10 black olives, pitted
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 c tomato sauce (mine was garlic flavored)
1 t dried dill
1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1 lb. farfalle/bowtie pasta

How to make it:
Set the water to boil for the pasta. Once boiling, drop in your pasta and stir every couple of minutes to prevent sticking.

While that's working, set a saute pan over med-high heat and add your olive oil. Heat for 2 minutes and add your onion. 

Saute for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and add the peppers, olives, and asparagus…
