PESTO GNOCCHI WITH SHRIMP AND ASPARAGUS

PESTO GNOCCHI WITH SHRIMP AND ASPARAGUS

So I've been dying to make a killer dish with the Cappello's gluten and grain free pasta that's been chillin' in my freezer and a friend invited me to a paleo dinner party last night and I knew it was the perfect time to whip something up. I wanted something light and fresh with lots of protein and veggies so I came up with this super simple, fast and delicious recipe. And I'm not kidding, it was so easy! I procrastinated until about 20 minutes before I had to leave for the party and I still made it in time. Another reason I'm super excited about this recipe? Because I've been extra busy lately and I know the simplicity and quick prep will help me stay on track with my diet. I've been training a lot more lately with my sights set on competing at the CrossFit Games next year and nutrition is so important. Obviously nutrition is always important, but it can really separate a good athlete from a great one. I want to make sure that when the time comes I've done everything I possibly could have to prepare. From my training, to my diet, to the amount of sleep I get, no stone will be unturned. Only then will I truly know I've done everything I could. And I hope this yummy recipe keeps you on track whatever your goals might be!
