Gnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Peso

This was really simple to make and was absolutely delicious. Next time, I’ll probably use half the asparagus though- while there was plenty in each dish, theyre was a LOT left over at the bottom of the serving bowl. You could probabaly also get away with a little less oil.
