Shrimp and Artichoke Pasta

Okay, this is easily one of my favorite meals of all time..

The first time I had it was when my Aunt Nancy made it for my 20th birthday dinner. It is so light, delicious, and not all that horrible for you (it has artichokes in it after all, which are a vegetable.. so, its healthy--right?). Pair this with a nice salad (I recommend spinach, blueberries and strawberries with a light raspberry dressing). This meal is perfect for a date night, girls night, or just a Friday night.

Bon Appetit!

  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 12 oz. angel hair pasta or linguini 
  • 4 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1 lb. Shrimp (raw, peeled and deveined)
  • 1 ½ cups drained artichoke hearts
  • 1 ½ cups feta cheese (crumbled) 
  • 1 cup chopped tomato 
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp. fresh oregano chopped or 1 ½ tbsp. dried

    1. Heat oil, sauté garlic 30 seconds.  
    2. Add shrimp, sauté for 2 minutes.   
    3. Add remaining ingredients except cheese and heat.  Add feta at last.   
    4. Grate asiago or parmesan on top.
