Author Notes: I always love shrimp pasta, and when I found lemon pepper linguine in a local shop, I knew it would be a match made in Heaven. If you can't find lemon pepper, any pasta will do.RuthD

Serves: 4

  • 13 ounces lemon pepper linguine
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cured kalamata olives, pitted & coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes, in oil, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves, chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf/Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 pinches red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1 pound large raw shrimps, peeled
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Chopped parsley for garnish
  1. Boil pasta in a large pot o well salted f water for time specified on package.
  2. While the pasta is boiling, heat a medium sized skillet, and sauté the olives, tomatoes, garlic, chili pepper flakes and herbs for 3 minutes or until fragrant over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes, turn and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Raise the temperature to high and add the white wine. Bring to a boil, toss and cook for a minute or two to reduce the alcohol in the sauce.
  3. Drain the pasta when it’s al dente and place in a large serving bowl (reserve ¼ cup of cooking liquid). Add the shrimp & "sauce". Taste for seasoning and add a little more red chili pepper flakes, more fresh herbs and either cooking liquid or drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Garnish with more parsley and serve with a salad.
