Angel Hair with Shrimp and Asapragus

i made this for dinner tonight. it was quick, simple, and delicious. here's the recipe...

...recipe my own creation
3/4 pound angel hair pasta, cooked
1 pound shrimp, peeled and devained
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil + a little bit more
1/4 cup chopped chives
lime wedges
salt and pepper
freshly grated parmesan cheese

In a large skillet heat the 1/2 cup of olive oil and saute the minced garlic for a few minutes, until it begins to soften. Add the shrimp and saute until the shrimp are pink and no longer translucent. Remove the shrimp from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving the olive oil and garlic mixture.

Preheat the broiler. Place asparagus in a baking dish and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Place under the broiler and cook, turning occationally, until lightly charred and tender. Cut the asparagus in half.

In a large bowl toss the pasta with the olive oil and garlic mixture. Toss in most of the chopped chives and some grated parmesan cheese. To serve, place a mound of pasta in the center of each bowl. Place several asparagus spears cut in half on top, then about 5-6 shrimp. Top with extra parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of chives. Serve with lime wedges.
