  • 8 ounces whole wheat linguine

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen fully cooked salad shrimp, thawed

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 (14 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained

  • ½ cup sliced black olives

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp, garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until garlic is lightly browned and shrimp is hot, about 5 minutes. Mix in the artichoke hearts, black olives, lemon juice and salt; cook until heated through. Toss with pasta in a serving dish and top with Parmesan cheese before serving.
