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
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.
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.
Try Linguine Aglio e Olio the next time you need a quick, delicious meal. If you don’t like shrimp, leave it off.
