Linguine Aglio e Olio with Shrimp and Artichoke Hearts

The title sounds fancy schmancy, doesn’t it? Actually, this is one of the easiest pasta dishes you’ll ever make. Linguine Aglio e Olio simply means linguine with garlic and oil. I add a little white wine and lime juice to finish off the sauce.

The shrimp and artichoke hearts add extra flavor to the Linguine Aglio e Olio. You can also add mussels if you’d like. I didn’t have any fresh mussels (members of several families of clams or bivalve mollusks). But they would have been really pretty in the photos.

Linguine Aglio e Olio with Shrimp and Artichoke Hearts happens to be a favorite Saturday night dinner when it’s just my husband and me. It’s also the perfect meal for entertaining guests. Add a salad and garlic bread and you’re good to go.

Helpful Hint:  This dish is completely done in less than 30 minutes.

Linguine Aglio e Olio with Shrimp and Artichoke Hearts


  • 1 lb. dry linguini
  • 24 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar artichoke hearts
  • 1 small onion, chopped (I use Vidalia when I can get them)
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced fresh garlic
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium tomato. diced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or 1/4 cup pasta sauce)
  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice (or lemon, if you prefer)
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes, optional
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta al dente according to directions on package.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, add four tablespoons olive oil. Add diced onion and saute until translucent. Add sliced garlic and cook, stirring, for 35 seconds.
  3. Add the remaining olive oil, white wine, lime juice and diced tomato. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and artichoke hearts and cook for 2-3 minutes, until shrimp are pink.
  5. Add linguine and mix well.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.

Have I mentioned that I don’t like parsley?

Parsley is usually left off as a garnish at my house. I just don’t love parsley. Instead, I use chives.  I always receive lots of compliments on this dish, so it seems I must be doing something right.

  2. Any pasta dish with shrimp has my attention and yours looks especially yummy. Our favorite is a knock off of a Carrabba’s dish they used to call Pasta Weesie which Stacy makes. I’ll have to show him your recipe because I know he will want to make this one too!

    • I remember Pasta Weesie! My husband ordered it many times. Our family loves Carrabba’s – that bread and olive oil/herb dip – yum! I always order the Shrimp and Scallop Spiedino with a side of wilted spinach and garlic. Even when the spinach is not on the menu, they always make it for me. 🙂
