Linguine Aglio e Olio with Shrimp and Artichoke Hearts

by Alli

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 green salad and garlic bread and you’re good to go.

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

Ingredients for Linguine Aglio e Olio

  • linguini

Linguine with Shrimp and Artichoke Hearts

Have I mentioned that I don’t care for parsley?

Bowl of Shrimp Linguine With Sauteed garlic and spinach

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

Yield: 4-6 servings

That Italian Sausage Rigatoni looks delicious! I’m a huge pasta lover. The linguine looked good, minus the artichokes for me! LOL. I’m not much in the way of those. Thanks for sharing!

Alli October 19, 2016 - 12:18 pm

Artichokes is one of those foods you either love or hate. I love um, but feel free to leave them off entirely. 😉

Shirley Wood October 19, 2016 - 10:07 am

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!

Alli October 19, 2016 - 12:17 pm

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. 🙂

This Linguine Aglio e Olio with shrimp and artichokes would be something my family would love to try because they are seafood lovers. I don’t really like seafood but the Italian sausage rigatoni would be something I would love to try. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

What a super yummy dish to have for dinner. I Love it, I will have to write down the ingredients.

Maureen @Scoops of Joy October 19, 2016 - 8:08 pm

Can we skip the artichoke hearts? I don’t think I could find them here in Indonesia. A meal ready in less than 30 mins? OMG! Yes, please. This looks so delicious and easy to make. Off to Pin it now.

Stephen October 19, 2016 - 10:57 pm

This looks super tasty – do you have any suggestions for shrimp replacement to still make it tasty?
